Healthy Taco Soup

Soup season is the best season. There’s nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup at 5pm because after the time change next week, my dinner schedule will be all messed up haha. Once it’s dark out, my brain enters dinnertime mode. When the weather starts getting like this, dark and cold outside, my body craves soup 24/7. Which means I eat oatmeal for breakfast and soup for dinner basically. This healthy taco soup hits the spot for both Eli and me because anything that slightly involves tacos is a win!
