Vegetarian Spicy Taco Soup




Okay my friends, for all of you doing the Daniel Fast like I am, here's a recipe to try if you're out of ideas! It's what's for dinner tonight(okay, I know I'm not Rachael Ray, but I like making up recipes anyway)!


Two cans pinto beans

One can black beans

One can red beans (also can use kidney beans)

One large can diced tomatoes

One can tomato paste
(Optional)One can chopped green chili's

One can corn

Half of One sweet onion, chopped

One raw jalapeno chopped (If you like things really spicy, you can add more. However, beware if you simmer all day in a crock pot. It can get really spicy)

One package taco seasoning (if you get the low sodium kind, it doesn't have sugar in it)

Or, you can substitute taco seasoning for the following: (all approx: I don't measure anything, just put it in my hand and throw it in ;)

- 2 tbs chili powder

- 1 1/2 tsp cumin (or cuminos)

- 1 tbs minced garlic

- 1/2 teaspoon salt


Mix all ingredients into a pot or crock-pot. Do not drain juice out of the cans. I simmer all ingredients in a crock-pot for a few hours. You can also simmer in a pot on the stove. The longer it simmers, the better (I think).


(I usually like it topped with cheese, sour cream and chips, but you know... Daniel doesn't think that's wise :)


For all of you non-Daniel Fasters. You can start out with a pound of ground beef. Yum!
