    Ground beef recipes are the best! And you can always change them up using ground turkey or pork for a slightly different flavour. I’ll have to try your taco soup!

    We always buy ground beef in bulk at Sam’s and make the same old recipes with it! I always forget about chili but with fall approaching it sounds really yummy! Thanks for sharing this!
