Soups on Our Menu: Ground Beef & Beans Soup

I found this recipe on Leanna's pages here. When I first read it, I thought I would make the soup for us. The day came yesterday - I was ready to cook it. However, I modified the recipe (ingredients) a bit, to adjust it to the Texas cooking style and our likes as well.

What I used:

  • 1lb ground beef,
  • 3 celery stalks - cut into pieces,
  • 1 big onion - as above,
  • 3 garlic cloves - chopped,
  • 1 tsp salt,
  • 1 tsp cumin,
  • 1 Tsp chili powder,
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper,
  • 4 cups water,
  • 2 chicken bullion cubes,
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chili,
  • 1 can cannellini beans - drained,
  • 1 can red kidney beans - drained
  • grated Mexican cheese (Queso Quesadilla) & chips to serve with the soup.

While making the soup, I followed the procedure given in Leanna's recipe.

At the end, when the soup was already in the bowls, I sprinkled it with some grated cheese.
It was a very nice meal which we both enjoyed. Certainly, the recipe is a keeper.

Thank you Leanna!
