Red Rooster Taco Soup

I had the chance when we were living in Northern Utah to work at a wonderful little quilt shop called the Red Rooster. My "Sewing friends" and I had been working on some projects here and there and it was a great opportunity to learn more from some master quilters who I worked with. It was great fun.

I love creating, cutting into small bits and making big again, mixing colors, and piecing. During that time I become friends with Kaye who was not only an amazing quilter but a great cook. She was more than that..much more than that. Inspirational and inspiring person to say the least. She shared her taco soup recipe with me. It has been a family staple ever sense.
