Tortilla Soup

Yield: Serves 4
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp. fajita seasoning and 1/2 tsp. cumin (optional)
  • salt, pepper and paprika to taste
  • 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 c. beef broth
  • 2 c. tomato sauce*
  • small can chopped green chili peppers
  • 3 sticks string cheese, in pieces
  • tortilla shreds
  • cheddar cheese, shredded
  • sour cream
  1. In large saucepan cook beef and onion together. Add all remaining ingredients except tortillas, cheddar cheese and sour cream. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
  2. Line bowls with tortilla shreds; add soup and top with cheese and sour cream.
The string cheese makes the flavor pop! * Any kind of tomato/pasta sauce can be used, but Florentine Spinach and Cheese by Prego is really good!
