Taco Soup

I’m on low carb diet so I wanted something good for supper where I wouldn’t have to cheat on my diet. I was inspired by a pin for Taco Soup to come up with my own version that would be carb free.

I hardly have any spices so I had to buy a bunch at the grocery. They aren’t cheap, but at least now I have some.

The first step is to brown the ground beef. I didn’t add olive oil to the pan though. I thought it would be ok without it. I burned the ground beef a little bit (I was multitasking while cooking dinner)…oops.

Put the ground beef in a large pot and set aside. Next up is to cook the onions and garlic in a little splash of olive oil.

Add the onions and garlic to the pot with the ground beef.  Add 1 cup of your beef broth to your frying pan that you used to cook the onions and ground beef and pour that into the pot. Then add your two cans of tomatoes, spices, and final 3 cups of beef broth.

Simmer for about an hour and serve hot topped with shredded cheese. It’s sooooo good and makes a lot of soup. We enjoyed it the next day too!
