Chicken Taco Soup is the cousin to Taco Soup but still has the same great flavor and can even be considered a Tortilla Soup.
Last week we had a cold front and the weather hit 70 for one day. That got me totally ready for Fall weather! And of course I had to make some Chicken Taco Soup for the family.
When I was younger, as soon as the weather would turn in the high 70s, I would start making taco soup. Sometimes weekly. It’s so simple to make and it is a hearty soup that the whole family will enjoy. I know because my nephew Caleb loves it.
But sometimes you get a little tired of having the same soup over and over. So I replaced the hamburger with chicken. It still has that great taste but resembles more of a Tortilla Soup. Perfect for a Sunday dinner with the family. Are you ready for Fall to?
