HOW TO STORE AND REHEAT Tasty TACO SOUP
Soups make the ultimate leftovers and this taco soup recipe is no exception! Simply store any leftovers in an airtight container and place them in the fridge for up to 5 days. When you’re ready to reheat, place the soup in a pot and reheat it on the stovetop. You can microwave this soup as well but make sure to cover the bowl with a paper towel or microwave-safe splash guard to keep your microwave clean.
I love to keep this soup on hand in the freezer for days when I don’t have time to cook a healthy meal. Sometimes, I even double this recipe, so I have lots of leftovers to freeze for the future. I pour room-temperature, single portions of soup into zipper freezer bags and freeze them flat. Once they’re frozen solid, you can easily stack them in the freezer, which is a great space saver.
When you’re ready to reheat a serving, defrost Weight Watchers Taco Soup in the fridge the night before and transfer it to a pot or microwave-safe dish. Do not microwave the soup in the freezer bag.
