Pinterest Interest: Taco Soup

Happy Friday friends!  I am keeping this short as I am still on the mend from a nasty cold.  This week consisted of LOTS of rest, some Netflix and many bowls of soup for myself, the Hubs and my nanny kiddos!

Today I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for a Pinterest Interest themed week!
I have had this taco soup recipe floating around in my mind the past few weeks, and this week ended up being perfect for making it due to being sick and it fit in our theme perfectly!  I did make a few changes to accommodate my allergies, but I think it still turned out really great!
