4 Mile Walk for Water. I know my family was up at the Lake, one of my favorite places to spend Labor Day (and in general!). Though, I missed being at the Lake, I had a great time on a girl's road trip to the Champagne Region in France (more details on that in another post)!
What's your favorite thing about fall?
Beefy Southwestern Soup
2 leftover burgers (or half pound lean ground beef)
1 T oil of your choice
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
40 oz Stewed Tomatoes (1 large can and 1 14.5 oz can)
2 c water
2 c vegetable broth
1 packet taco seasoning (I used low sodium)
1 T cumin
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1 can black beans (or 15 oz cooked at home)
1 c frozen corn
juice of 1 lime
1/4 c fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Corn Tortillas, toasted
Pico de Gallo
In a large stock pot heat 1 T of oil. Sauté garlic and onion for 1-2 minutes. Add red pepper until soft. Break apart hamburgers, until the texture of ground beef. Add to pot. Cook together for 2 minutes to blend the flavors. Add stewed tomatoes, water, vegetable broth, taco seasoning and other seasonings. Add corn and black beans. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add fresh cilantro. Simmer for 25 minutes. Add lime juice before serving. Salt & pepper as needed. **If using ground beef, cook beef with onions and garlic, then add other ingredients when cooked through, provided it is a lean beef.
Garnish with cilantro, chopped scallions and other favorites. Bon Appétit!
