Fajita Soup

Years ago soup was consider fast food.

I know people like soup in fall or winter. But I like soup anytime of the year. Soup is quick and easy. And one pot wonders. You can use leftovers for soup. You can add just about anything to pot and add stock and call it soup. The foundation of any soup is the stock. You can cook a soup in 30 minutes or less, but it will taste like you cooked the soup all day.

Definition of fast food has changed over the years, soup is versatile one pot wonders.
