Hello! This week’s recipe is what I call a “Man Pleaser.”
I made this for my husband and he really liked it. I liked it too, and it’s an easy soup that is just full of flavor and doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare. I usually serve it with garlic rolls or Texas toast.
-1 lb cooked ground beef (I use 96% lean)
-1 onion, chopped
-1/2 large green pepper, chopped
-2 cloves garlic
-1 (16 oz) jar salsa
-2 cans kidney beans (I use the dark red)
-1 can pizza sauce (12 oz)
-4 oz mini pepperoni (or 4oz reg. pepperoni cut in half, I used turkey pepperoni)
-1 cup water
-1 teaspoon chili powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-1/2 to 1 teaspoon of basil
-3 cups (12 oz shredded) part-skim mozzarella cheese
First, cook hamburger, onion, green pepper and garlic in a skillet over a medium heat until hamburger is cooked through.
Then transfer to a large pan and add salsa, pizza sauce, pepperoni, kidney beans, water, chili powder, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Last, serve in bowls topped with cheese. Enjoy!
