Beefy Refried Bean Soup

Beefy Refried Bean Soup created by Parsley

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE TITLE! Your kids, hubby, wifey, and everyone will eat it. I have made triple batches and could not keep it in the house. It's very smooth, and easily eaten by anyone with or without teeth. :) Fights have started over the leftovers.

ingredients

directions

  • Roughly chop the onion, pepper, and celery.
  • Add the oil to a large stock pot and add the chopped vegetables, cooking until soft.
  • Add the beef and cook until browned.
  • Add the tomatoes and refried beans with the garlic, spices, and mix well.
  • Stir in the stock (you can use bouillon cubes and omit some of the water to make this as a dip) and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Either use a stick blender or small batches into your food processor and puree the soup.
  • Adjust the seasonings (I like mine A LOT spicier so I add more cayenne and some green chilies to the mix, sometimes a dash or two of Tabasco.).
  • Serve with sour cream and tortilla chips.
  • Freezes Well.

    This was great, doubled the spices (many indicated it was bland) double amount was perfect. Let it cook all afternoon & didn't puree at the end. Thanks for sharing!

    this was delicious!! I did make it a bit different as we don't eat red meat. I used extra firm tofu crumbled up instead. I also used chicken broth instead of beef. I had made homemade refried beans yesterday and needed to find something other than bean dip to use them for and this was awesome!! I had everything else on hand. Everyone really liked it and thought it tasted alot like chicken enchilada soup. but this was ALOT easier!! And quicker!! Thanks for a great go to recipe!! Good for an evening with not alot of time!!

    Great chili. I did add more of the spices and an Anaheim, Pasilia and jalapeno chili. Other than that was as written. Simmered a couple of hours and was great!
