I love anything that tastes like Mexican food. It gives me so much comfort. This is absolutely included in my food list.

Omg this sounds so delicious! I absolutely love everything about tacos but I've never heard of taco soup before, and now that I have being a soup lover, you can bet it'll be on the top of my soup list. Ground turkey is perfect for keeping it less greasy too and the beans will no doubt make it super hearty. I'm thinking you can even add some shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes on top to get the full effect if you wanted to.

Mexican flavors always speak to me. And the added tortilla chips are a great touch!
