I’m always on the lookout for a quick and easy dish. With my Blendtec, I can quickly whip up a protein smoothie to sip on during my morning commute or a warm, filling soup for that night’s dinner. I’m also a sucker for Mexican food, but all the fats and grease that come along with a plate of enchiladas is enough to make me sick. So, I came up with this flavorful and healthy Creamy Taco Soup to fulfill those Mexican cravings.
The best part about this recipe is that it makes enough for an entire week of lunches or dinners. I just prepare everything on a Sunday afternoon and refrigerate the soup until I’m ready to eat. It makes a perfect meal when paired with a green salad or chips and salsa!
