This is easy to make and filling. As written, I topped with Monterey jack cheese, but I chose smoked paprika over the regular variety. That really brought out more flavor and went nicely with the soup. I made this as written and although it was very good, I thought some more seasonings would be good. Next time I'd add smoked paprika while it cooks and maybe some cumin as well. Thanx for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the chopped onions and bell peppers in a medium frying pan with the butter until the onions are translucent, about three minutes.
  2. Add the ground round and cook until not pink. Remove any fat by tilting the pan and soaking up the fat with a wadded paper towel.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the kidney beans, stewed tomatoes and the cooked ground round mixture. Simmer over medium heat for 10 or 12 minutes, until hot.
  4. Ladel into (heated) soup bowls. Top with shredded Monterey Jack cheese, sprinkle with a pinch of paprika (optional) and serve.
