#WIAW And Taco Soup

Good Thursday Morning!

My second linkup EVER and of the week (I’d say I was on a roll!)  It is also my first linkup with #WIAW, thanks to Jenn over at Peas & Crayons for hosting!  Looking forward to many more!

Again, beyond excited about these linkup opportunities! Finding new recipes and connecting with new bloggers gets me P-U-M-P-E-D!

Since I’m new to this, I haven’t gotten into the habit of capturing all of the meals I eat, yet.  Instead, I’ll use it to share an awesome and super simple Taco Soup recipe with everyone!

  1. I made this last weekend! I substituted the sausage and ground turkey for chicken breasts that I shredded and added in diced stop light peppers, onions and fresh cilantro. Delish! 🙂
