Tonight I made Pronto Taco Soup for dinner and it turned out so well, even the boys enjoyed it. Dinner was such a success that I am thinking of serving tortilla chips any time we have soup, just so the kids will give it a try. Nathan had seconds!!
Pronto Taco Soup
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) beef broth
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1-1/2 cups picante sauce - I could not find this in the store so I used salsa instead
1 cup uncooked spiral or small shell pasta
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
Shredded cheddar cheese and tortilla chips
In a large saucepan, cook the beef, onion and garlic until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the broth, tomatoes, picante sauce, pasta, green pepper, chili powder and parsley. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until pasta is tender. Garnish with cheese and tortilla chips. Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts)
