Happy Monday, lovebugs! Are you enjoying an extra day off for the holiday weekend, or is it business as usual? We traded our flip-flops for snow boots, and headed to Winter Park for a quick family weekend of fun in the snow. We haven’t seen so much as a flurry all season in Texas, but Colorado is more than making up for it!
There’s a lot of skiing and tubing on the itinerary, with frequent hot chocolate breaks…because, baby it’s COLD outside! The kind of cold that makes you want to hunker in with Netflix and a pot of chili!
Even though we haven’t had any snow days at home, this Taco Soup recipe is one I reach for often. It’s hearty, delicious, nutritious…and most importantly, super easy to prepare!
To refresh your memory, Brandless is an online store selling a variety of items from food to clean beauty to household products…most for only $3 (or less!)! They offer non-GMO food, as well as certified organic, vegan, gluten-free and other specialty products!

Hearty Taco Soup
1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 sweet onion, diced
1 pack Brandless Taco Seasoning
1 pack Ranch Seasoning Mix (trust me!)
1 15oz. can diced tomatoes
1 15oz. can Brandless Tomato Sauce
1 can Rotel
1 can corn (I use frozen corn)
2 cans Brandless Kidney Beans
1. In large saucepan, saute onion in Brandless EVOO
2. Add meat and cook until brown
3. Add remaining ingredients, simmer 30 minutes – 1 hour
I treat it like chili, and serve with shredded cheese, jalapeños, and cornbread. This Brandless Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix is really delicious (and we aren’t even a gluten-free house!)…the muffins are fluffy and moist.
Not only is it incredibly convenient to have all our pantry staples delivered directly to our door, but virtually everything we’ve tried is delicious and made with the highest quality standards and social ethics.
Brandless is adding new things every month, and I’m so excited they just expanded with pet products, as well as more household and kitchen products. I just got this Acadia cutting board for only $9 and am seriously impressed!
