Super Easy Taco Soup

Hi friends!  I hope you are you all doing well!  We have had better weeks.  I'm not going to lie to you.  I'm sick and hubby is sick.  The boys need parent teacher conferences.  The baby is... oh so very two. And we are having car issues.  But next week will be better, right?  Promise?

You know what helps on those weeks like this??  Super quick meals that everyone in the family will eat without complaining.  This is a taco soup recipe that I got from my mother in law that I've made tiny changes to.  It is so easy and fast!  The kids LOVE this soup!  It's perfect for during the week when you need to throw something together and run out the door to scouts, sports, or whatever you do.

Taco Soup
1 pound of ground turkey
1 packet of taco seasoning (you can also sub in your own homemade taco seasoning)
2 cans petite diced tomatoes in juice
2 cans of corn
1 can of black beans
1 can of pinto beans
Toppings of your choice (we like cheese, salsa, chips, sour cream)

1. Brown turkey in a large pot and drain the fat.
2. Open all the cans and dump ALL of them in (with liquid).
3. Season with taco seasoning.  I usually use a whole packet or the equivalent of homemade seasoning.
4. Cook for about 20 mins to let the flavors meld.
5. Ladle into bowls and top with your favorite taco toppings.

If you try this recipe, let me know how you like it!  :)
