Black Bean Taco Soup

Black Bean Taco Soup I have this thing for Taco Soup... There is something so warm and comforting about it and I can eat an entire pot by myself if I'm not careful. The flavor is always amazing and that crunch you get from the tortilla chips is just perfect. But for some reason I have not made it in YEARS. I have no idea why. I guess I kinda forgot about it. Until a few weeks ago when I did a bunch of freezer meals. I was cooking up a ton of taco meat and thought to myself, I bet taco soup would be excellent frozen. Because when isn't taco soup amazing? It had been so long since I had made it I couldn't remember where I had a recipe for it so I searched for a new one and came up with an excellent result. It is everything I had hoped for. Plus. It's SUPER easy! Score :)
