Go ahead and wipe the drool off your mouth…. this picture will do that to you, and yes it really is that good. This is not a fast recipe, but it is worth the wait.  The meal itself is rather easy most the time is just waiting for it to cook and to get the meat to the point that it falls apart and melts in your mouth.  This recipe is also great as leftovers or to freeze part of it for a super fast and easy dinner idea another night. We eat it on top of mashed potatoes but you can also eat it over rice or noodles.

Ingredients

2 pounds of beef, cubed
Olive oil
6 carrots, diced
2 celery sticks, choped
1 onion, sliced
1 shallot, sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 small can of diced tomatoes (any size is ok, depending how thick you’d like the stew)
1 quart of beef broth
1/2 cup of red wine
2 Tbsp of Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
handful of parsley, chopped
1 cup of frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of flour

Cook for about 5 minutes, add the tomatoes and crush them a little with a wooden spoon.

Chicken Taco Soup, Quick Weeknight Meal

chicken taco soup. one pot meals. quick meal ideas. easy meals. chicken tacos. taco soup. quick weeknight meal ideas

Making dinner can be such a pain some nights, right? I know on a weekday when everyone is gone at school, work, sports games and practices, it can be hard to plan a good meal. Sitting down to dinner is important to us, but as the kids get older, sometimes that is not possible. On those nights, I love that this can be ready and warmed up as they get home and get a chance to eat. This is a family favorite in our house and one of the easiest meals to make.

chicken taco soup. one pot meals. easy meals. quick meal ideas. chicken tacos. taco soup. quick weeknight meal ideas, ingredients

Recipe:

1 pound cooked, shredded chicken (could also used canned)

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 packet taco seasoning mix

1 can chili beans

1 can beans (I have used many different kinds and they all taste great!)

2 cans of water

Drain and rinse your can of beans, but NOT your chili beans.

chicken taco soup. one pot meals. easy meals. quick meal ideas. taco soup. chicken tacos. quick weeknight meal ideas, ingredients

Add all to a pot and mix together, making sure your cream soups aren’t lumpy. Bring to a low boil over medium high heat. You are ready to serve.

We enjoy it with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream, but you could use any toppings here. It is great scooped up with some tortilla chips, that is my kids’ favorite way to eat it.

This seems to be one meal that everyone will eat and enjoy, which in a family can be hard to find something everyone agrees on!

This also freezes well, so double everything and freeze half for later.
