southwest beef and black bean soup

This week we are highlighting healthy dinner recipes.  When I think of healthy recipes I often think of Green Salad recipes. But during the winter I love to make a lot of soup recipes. So today I am sharing a quick and easy Southwest Beef and Black Bean soup recipe with you.

Things to note:

  • I use Zaycon 93/7 lean ground beef. It is so lean it does not require any draining of fat.
  • You can use any kind of Stewed tomatoes, I like the Rotel because of the extra spice and flavor.
  • The lime, cilantro, cheese and sour cream do not have to be added, but they sure enhance the flavor.
  • To save on dishes I fry my meat and cook my soup all in the same stock pot.
  • This is a doubled recipe to serve 8 because I love to have leftovers for lunches.
  • Corn would also be a good addition to this soup.

This recipe was inspired by the Southwest Beef and Black Bean Chili found in Every Dish Delivers: 365 Days of Fast, Fresh, Affordable Meals
