This soup is healthy and delicious all in one comforting bowl. It's also vegan and gluten-free!
My name is Lauren and I eat soups all year long.
There I said it. Yes, some people think it's strange to eat a bowl of hot soup when it's 80 degrees out. Not me. Bring it on! I prefer soup with vegetables in there. Lots and lots of vegetables. Add some pasta, rice or quinoa and I am even happier. And I don't like when my soups are too thick and creamy. Did I mention that I was a really picky eater?
All of a sudden it just got really cold. Like crazy, windy, 40-50 degrees cold. This is where my obsession with soup comes in handy. Now people won't think I am crazy for making soup all the time. And they even want some of my soup. I'll share (a little) sometimes.

I am in love with these Trader Joe's Organic Tortilla Chips. Please ignore the blurry picture, I let my 5 year old take it. I figured it was just a picture of a bag of chips, how bad could the picture come out? THIS is how bad...
But you get the idea. They are delicious. I love that they are organic and have quinoa and chia seeds in them. And they taste extra delicious with this soup! Hope you enjoy the soup too!
This is so easy and my kids love it!
My family LOVES taco soup and I love easy, healthy recipes! This is PERFECT!
So happy you liked it!
So delicious! The avocado and cilantro makes this soup so fresh! I will be putting this into my monthly rotation!
Love this soup! Flavorful and super easy to make. I think we're going to toss in some chicken next time.
I don't know why I never thought to put black beans in my soup!! It is so good! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
This looks so hearty and comforting. Although I'm an equal opportunity soup-love. I like the thick, creamy ones too, but mainly when they are thick and creamy from pureed veggies, and not super rich and heavy.
Ha! I love it Brianne!! You're so diplomatic! 🙂
Yummy! I wish more places had veggie friendly taco soups. I see them on menus all the time but I can't have any of them because they all have chicken!
I completely agree Genevieve! 🙂

Thank you so much Amy!
I eat soups year round also and LOVE IT. This taco soup sounds like something I want to curl up with tonight. It is SO COLD here now!
Doesn't it feel like it got cold all of a sudden Joanne? Perfect for my soup obsession! 🙂
