Dos and Don’ts

TacoSoup2I have some instructions for you regarding this soup.

Do add cilantro. It brings just a little bit of brightness.


Do respect your Husband’s wishes if he says that no you shouldn’t bring this to lunch with your girlfriends tomorrow because he likes it so much.


Do eat this cold with chips, salsa, and Greek yogurt standing beside the kitchen counter tomorrow. Trust me.


Don’t not make this.


That’s all I have to say about that.
