It’s officially soup season!!! Y’all know how much I LOVE me some soup so this may or may not be my favorite time of the year…HA!! My usual Taco Soup is tomato based but I found a cream based recipe on Pinterest and just had to try it! I tweaked it a little and now it is perfect. I call this one Creamy Taco Soup, original I know, but trust me when I say it will blow your socks off! Plus it’s a one pot recipe and you just can’t beat that!!
When I say this recipe is cream based what I really mean is that is has cream cheese. And heavy whipping cream. YUM! Cream cheese in anything is my jam. The key to using cream cheese in the recipe (and any other soup recipe) is using it only when it’s at room temp. If it’s too cold it will take forever to melt and you are stuck stirring it forever and that makes for a sore arm. Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything….LOL!!
One of my favorite things about this soup is that there are so many different ways to top it! You can go traditional and do cheese or chips. I like to put my own spin on it and use blue tortilla chips. Not only do they add some color but I think they taste better than regular tortilla chips. The ones I used to top this soup are organic but to me they taste saltier? All I know is that they are so DAMN GOOD.
Also, in case you can’t tell I like to LOAD my soup down with chips. What can I say, I like a lot of crunch! I also like to top to with green onions. I could honestly eat green onions on everything. HA! Why do they taste so good??
The full recipe is below! I hope you enjoy it!!
