Taco Twist Soup: A colorful, easy meal in a pot

When I shared the story about the meal ministry at Kingston United Methodist Church, I learned that “Taco Twist Soup” is a favorite of their monthly lunchtime guests.

Here’s the soup recipe, courtesy of Janet Moore. I tried it tonight, and I’m really impressed. It’s a great meal in a pot with common pantry ingredients, lots of color, and a nice mix of vegetables and protein.

Without the cheese and sour cream topping, it’s even healthy! But by all means, try it the decadent way first.

1 lb. ground beef
