  1. That taco soup looks like an easy delicious meal. I'll have to try it sometime. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's nice to meet you .

  2. I can vouch for this soup recipe - delish! Got it from my neighbor a while back. Agreed, canned foods are quick, easy and flavorful - especially beans and tomatoes. But with some other types of produce, I personally prefer fresh or frozen.
