I created this recipe from a combination of a couple other recipes and then some of my own changes as well. I LOVE making it because I LOVE to eat it! Plus it's fun to have a recipe where I can use the veggies/fruit and beef that we grew and have it be super tasty too! :-)
1 onion, chopped
1 lb ground beef
1 quart canned tomatoes
2-1/4 cups water
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
1-1/2 Tablespoons dried cilantro
2 teaspoons beef bullion
2 cups frozen corn
1 (4oz) can chopped green chile peppers
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
(Or 1 cup dried beans, but precook them!)
Cheddar or Taco cheese
Crushed tortilla chips
*In a stock pot, cook ground beef and onion until beef is brown and onion is clear.
*Add in tomatoes, water and seasonings. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
*Stir in corn, chiles and beans. Simmer for 10 minutes.
*Ladle soup into bowls and add desired toppings! YUM!
