The cold, winter months call for some comfort food.  Especially, when it’s been downright frigid throughout the country.  Luckily, taco night will take on a whole new level of comfort with this easy and delicious Chicken Taco Soup.

Who doesn’t love a big bowl of hot, hearty soup? It’s pretty much the perfect comfort food, right?

Comforting Chicken Taco Soup

When it gets as cold as it’s been lately, we practically survive on soup! The Hubs loves to hear that we are having some sort of soup for dinner when he gets home on these freezing days we’ve been having! We love to curl up on the sofa with a big bowl of hot soup and just have a nice relaxing evening.

This Chicken Taco Soup is one of our family’s favorite soup recipes! It’s very easy to make, coming together in under 45 minutes. It doesn’t require an insane amount of ingredients and it’s customizable to fit our tastes! If you’d rather have Taco Soup with beef instead of chicken – just switch out the meats (and the broth! Beef broth would probably taste better than chicken!) Leave out the beans if you’re not a fan or switch out to a different kind of bean that your family enjoys. Throw in some extra veggies or even leave out the meat to make it a Veggie Taco Soup! Add some cheese or sour cream to the toppings for an extra burst of flavor. It’s so easy to make this soup your own!
