Mom's Taco Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by laurenpie

This recipe is so much better the newer ones that use spice or dressing mixes!! Definitely use good quality, mild California chili powder. OPTIONAL: Serve with sliced avocados. Family Note: This is Mom-mom's recipe, except I increased the spices and added olives and cilantro.

Hubby loves this soup, although I have to use whole canned tomatoes instead of diced since he won't eat a cooked tomato he can actually see. I use the smaller amounts on the spices and garnish with sour cream.
