Taco Soup

I don't know about you, but I just love good ole "comfort food." when the weather is a little nippy outside, nothing says comfort like a big bowl of homemade soup. Most of us don't have all day to cook like our moms & grandmas did, so for all you working moms out there, here is an easy soup that is delicious, hearty, and can be stretched to feed unexpected guests. This is a favorite of my oldest daughter ( who still lives in the midwest; and you know how cold it gets there....BRRRR) in fact she introduced me to it several years ago. I like serving it with a big pan of freshly baked cornbread, but you can also opt to serve it with tortilla chips instead.  I also like to top it with shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Hope y'all enjoy it!........Lulabelle
