Running Late Option
Should you find that you don’t have 4-6 Hours to slow cook your easy taco soup recipe, you can move to a sauce pan on the stove top.
Slow cooking certainly helps to blend the many ingredient flavors, however in a pinch, the stove top is still delicious.
Cooking a Large Pot of Taco Soup
Another advantage to cooking a large pot of soup is that any leftovers can be easily frozen for another winter’s day. Here is an Easy Enchilada Recipe that also freezes well for last minute meals.
