This is one of the quickest, one pot, savory dishes you can make! It’s perfect if you’re in the beginning stages of the Veritas Healing Diet since there is no dairy or grains (if you leave out the hominy).
Use beef broth (homemade is best) and grass-fed ground beef to make this as nourishing as possible.
Spend a little extra time mixing up a few seasoning blends from the website and you’re set for the best flavor and quality seasoning. Plus, there are a ton of ways to use the taco and ranch seasonings in addition to in this soup! (Links in list of ingredients).
If you would like more information about canned tomatoes, read the bottom of this post below the recipe.
- 1 lb ground beef (grass-fed is best)
- 1 yellow onion , chopped
- 1 small can green chilis (if you want a little heat)
- 2 1/2 Tbs VK taco seasoning mix (link below)
- 1 1/2 Tbs VK ranch seasoning mix (link below)
- 2 cans of beans (black, pinto, whatever you like!, drained)
- 1 can organic hominy , drained (optional) *
- 2 cans organic diced tomatoes**
- About 2 cups of water or beef broth
- At least 2 tsp salt plus more to taste and black pepper
- Use diced tomatoes with green chilis added or fire-roasted tomatoes. Yum!
- Garnish with chopped scallions, salsa, sour cream, grated cheese, fresh lime juice, cilantro, the list goes on…
- Place a large soup pot on the stove top over medium-high heat.
- Brown your ground beef and chopped onion together in the pot. (You can drain the meat of fat once browned if you like but if you’re using grass-fed beef the fat is among some of those healthy fats you WANT…so, leave it in there…at least some of it).
- While your beef is browning, drain your beans and hominy (if using) and get all your other ingredients ready.
- Bring soup to a boil and then lower the heat to medium-low so it simmers (gently boils) for about an hour. At the end of this time if you want more liquid just add more broth.
*Hominy is made from corn. If you are grain-free you will want to omit this ingredient. Purchasing organic hominy ensures it is non-GMO. **You can use a large glass jar of diced tomatoes instead (if you are concerned about acidic tomatoes leaching chemicals from the can). Look for diced tomatoes that say “no salt added.” This goes a long way toward keeping your unhealthy sodium down.
