Three Bean Taco Soup
Very Good 4.6/5

Cookbook creator says: Half this recipe!!! I used chili pinto beans and ground lamb. Add sautéed onions, bell peppers, and garlic. No Rotel! Use diced onions, 1/2 the taco seasoning. Top with cheese and cilantro. Serve with whole wheat cornbread. GREAT!

Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Super! 'Could add mushrooms and fresh red pepper. I added a half cup of chicken bouillon to steamed shrimp and it was still terrific! Quicker that way, too, because the grocery store will season and steam the shrimp for you. Definitely a keeper!

The meat does not need to be seared in skillet first to make this fall-apart tender, pulled BBQ beef for sandwiches. This recipe has so much flavor no one will notice the Worcestshire sauce & the salt were deleted to reduce sodium (you may also use low-sodium catsup and BBQ to reduce sodium further). Using molasses instead of brown sugar and Worcestshire gives a depth of flavor and authenticity, while reducing sugar & sodium. It is great to take to picnics, buffets, or tailgating. Freezes well.

I got the idea for this recipe from the Hungry Girl 200 reciepes for under 200 cal cookbook, just substituting chicken for tilapia. It was soooo good and takes care of the BBQ and sweet cravings in one shot. My kids even loved it. Hey, it got a picky three year old to eat...
