This easy chicken taco soup pairs perfectly with cornbread and/or chips. I like Late July Dippers; I use them like a spoon. Just scoop up some soup, and in your mouth, it goes in one giant bite.

This soup recipe will serve eight, but we like big bowls of soup, so for us, it’s more like six. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or frozen for longer storage.
