Weeknight Dinners: Taco Soup

In cold and dreary weather, I always tend to crave soups and stews, so I recently pulled out my recipe box and rediscovered an old favorite; Taco Soup.  I'm not even sure where this recipe came from, but I'm certain there are a lot of variations of it floating around on Pinterest.

This particular recipe is perfect for a weeknight.  It's quick and easy and will be sure to please even your pickiest eaters.  My whole family likes it which doesn't happen all that often!
