Winter is the perfect season for singing carols, snowman building and yummiest of all, a Jolly Green Giant-size bowl of soup. Who doesn’t love a crusty bread bowl filled with Market Street clam chowder, slow cooker spicy chicken soup or a delicious (and easy) tomato artichoke soup?

Don’t forget your classic homemade chicken noodle soup—a great way to use leftover turkey from the holidays.

One of my new favorites is this chicken taco soup…and not just because it’s one of those recipes where I usually have everything on hand. It’s similar to a white chicken chili but has a definite taco taste to it…and I kind of like it that way.

Don’t be fooled by the ingredients list. Half of the items listed are toppings. The rest, other than the onion, will come from a pouch or can. So easy! By the way, white shoepeg corn is my all-time favorite canned corn for soup recipes and appetizers like my famous cowboy salsa. It’s seriously the sweetest.
