Easy Lentil Taco Soup with black beans! A family-friendly meal that everyone can load up with their own favorite taco toppings. (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)
This Lentil Taco Soup is super easy to assemble, yet incredibly flavorful (and so pretty!) I’m continually looking for more ways to work in lentils. They’re inexpensive and packed with awesome nutrients. This simple soup is one of my favorites, plus I love that it’s another use for my homemade taco seasoning blend. A quick & easy way to infuse those delicious fiesta-style flavors!
The best part is you can load it up with all your favorite taco toppings before serving. It’s a fun, family-friendly meal that works great for kids & crowds – just double the recipe if needed for more. (We also enjoy some of these same flavors in the Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Peppers.) Hope you love it as much as we do!
