Welcome to Tasty Tuesday ya’ll! We had some fun last week with so many great recipes! I hope you’ll be able to join us this week with a recipe, restaurant review, food tip…whatever. The more the merrier, right?
It’s been soooo cold all across the country, even in Florida, and I’ve been craving some good, hot soup to warm us up!
Today I’m making Southwestern Soup and the smell alone is enough to make everyone hungry as they walk in the door! I love soup simmering on the stove! And it’s much easier than it looks!
- 1 1b ground beef
- 1 cup coarsely chopped onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 (16-oz.) cans light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 (15-oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 (14.5-oz.) can petite diced tomatoes and jalapenos, undrained
- 1 (14.5-oz.) can diced tomatoes and mild green chilies, undrained
- 1 (14-oz.) can beef broth
- 2 cups frozen yellow and white whole kernel corn
- 1 (1-oz.) envelope taco seasoning mix
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
Toppings: sour cream and chopped fresh cilantro
- Brown ground beef, onion, and garlic in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring often, 10 to 12 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink and onion is softened; drain.
- Stir in kidney beans, next 8 ingredients, and 4 cups water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in cilantro just before serving. Serve with desired toppings.
I added less of the canned tomatoes and peppers so it wouldn’t be too hot for us! Hey…we like stuff a little on the mild side!
I baked up some cornbread to go along with it…YUM!
I thought about making cornbread from scratch…and then I came to my senses. I found this wonderful mix and it’s a new favorite! Our youngest son wanted to know if I would make it for him everyday! The flavors of the cornbread and the soup made for a great combination!
This whole meal was really simple to make. Brown the meat, onions, and garlic, throw everything else in, and move on to painting your nails (don’t you wish?) until it’s time to eat! That’s just the kind of recipe I need during the week. I think it would be yummy with chicken or maybe even some tortilla chips as a topping!
Tim saw me taking photos of the soup and he had to give it a try right then! He gives it “two thumbs up!”
I did try a couple recipes from last week’s party, and they both turned out great! When I saw the recipe for Nonnie Bear’s Bacon Bow Tie Pasta I realized I already had most of the ingredients…it was a big hit! Then we needed dessert, so I tried TidyMom’s Chocolate Crescents recipe, and I’ll just say that they were fighting over who would get the last one!
I think all my boys are pretty happy about this new food bloggin’ party stuff!
Now let’s see what everyone else brought to our Tasty Tuesday blog party this week!
