I’m not quite sure how we lept from Summer to Winter, but my brain seems to have skipped Fall completely. It may have been the unseasonably warm September that we had here in the Puget Sound region, or it may have been how incredibly busy September always seems to be, but either way I’m a little shell-shocked that Thanksgiving is only 4 weeks away, and Christmas is only 8. Did you hear that?? EIGHT WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!!!

I need to have about 3-4 quick meals on hand at any given time so if I don’t get a chance to plan and make something more involved, I’m not left scrambling during the dinner rush.

This 20 Minute Taco Soup is one of those meals that I know I can whip up in very little time, and most of my kids will usually eat it without putting up too much of a fight. That’s a win in my book!

20 Minute Taco Soup

This is a very typical “dump and go” meal. It would be easily adaptable to a slow cooker, and could be even easier and quicker if you are in the habit of pre-browning some ground beef and keeping it in your freezer.

You probably have most of these ingredients already in your cupboard right now. I always buy the big bulk packages of dry Ranch seasoning, for exactly this reason.
