It is always good to have a few recipes that you can whip up out of the pantry staples you already have on hand.  It’s even better if those recipes also happen to be freezer friendly so that you can simply throw the ingredients together in a bag and freeze them for a later, busier day.  And if the recipe happens to ALSO be a family favorite that your kids and husband just love?  Well then quite frankly, that’s a recipe you just can’t live without.

This quick & easy taco soup literally comes together in just 10 minutes, including the time it takes to brown the meat!  It makes 8 generous servings, I will often mix it up, then cook one half and freeze the other half for later.  It is also a great “cheater” recipe for a freezer cooking day!

    This sounds yummy but do you have any suggestions on a substitute for the corn? I love corn but I have some digestive issues and corn is a no go unless I want to be in pain for days 🙂 Thanks!

      Just take out the beef and its vegetarian…right?

        Yes, I would think so. The recipe already says next to the beef “or vegetarian crumble”. I am vegetarian and am going to try this recipe for sure. Looks yummy.

    I made this even easier by just dumping everything directly into the bags instead of mixing it all together into a pot first…less dishes! (Yes, I did brown the meat first)

    I made this today and it was great 🙂
    I live in South Africa so I had to make some substitutions for ingredients I didn’t have; fresh onion diced; kidney beans and 4 bean mix; regular tomatoes and no tomato sauce. I doubled the ground beef and it made 3 meals. (each meal feeds 5)
    thank you, the whole family loves it!
