Healthy Taco Soup

Robust Recipe: Healthy Taco Soup!

It’s that time of year for football, hockey, and basketball parties. Taco soup is a easy and tasty meal to serve that’s sure to please all of your guests no matter what team wins or loses. Being high in protein, fiber, iron, and vitamin C, it will leave you feeling satisfied. It also freezes nicely so if you have left-overs you can save some for a lazy day.
