A great soup to warm you up. Adjust spiciness to your liking. Use regular Velveeta instead of Mexican-style (or half of each type) if you don't like that much heat.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large soup pot, brown and crumble the ground beef with the onion, garlic and red bell pepper. Drain any excess fat and return to the pot.
  2. Add the chicken broth and spicy V-8 and bring to a soft boil.
  3. Stir in the refried beans, undrained diced tomatoes, black beans, cilantro, green chilies, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir until the refried beans are well incorporated.
  4. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  5. Stir in the cubed Mexican Velveeta (or regular Velveeta or some of each).
  6. Allow to melt and heat through before serving.
  7. Serve with optional crushed tortilla chips, if desired.

Very tasty soup! The texture of the beans was a little weird to may so I may reduce by a bit next time but overall this was very good. DH especially really enjoyed it. Thanks!
