Cooking and Seasoning the Taco Meat
In a medium pot brown 1 pound ground beef, venison, or turkey.
Add in ½ diced onion and cook until translucent.
Finishing the Soup
You will now want to add in 32 ounces beef broth, 16 ounces diced tomatoes with green chilies, and 2 cups of mixed vegetables (You can use frozen or canned mixed vegetables. You will want the blend that has the carrots, green beans, and peas in it.). Bring to a boil. Turn the temperature down and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add in 1 cup instant rice (brown or white can be used) and simmer until the rice is tender which is about 5 minutes, then serve. Salt and pepper to taste.
Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup Option
In a medium skillet brown the 1 pound of ground beef or other meat choices. Add in the onion and cook until translucent. Then season the meat with Chugwater Chili Seasoning. Add this to the slow cooker with the beef broth, tomatoes, mixed vegetables, and rice. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. If you are worried about the rice swelling up too much wait until halfway through the cooking time to add it in.
If you are vegetarian or want to stick to a more plant-based diet you can easily adapt this soup to your needs.
