One of my favorite times of the year is game day! It’s not just all of the hype of the big game but also about the food for me. I love to make a big spread whether we are having family and friends over or are just spending it by ourselves and this year isn’t going to be any different. I am going to share our favorite game day taco soup made with Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes.
Now I know that there are a lot of recipes around the web for taco soup but they are nothing like mine! Why? Because I use Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes. What’s the difference? Quiet a few, for one I do NOT use a packet of seasoning because the Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes offer a variety of flavor already in them and it’s a lot more flavorful to add my own spices!
Prep time: 10-
This taco soup is perfect for game day or for a chilly day that needs something to warm you up.
