Tips

1 cup of chopped red onion is 160 grams. I think I had over a cup - because it needs to be a large onion. Next time I make will edit recipe

I bought 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms
I used Real Lemons 100% lime juice from concentrate
I did add the cup of water.
I couldn't find fresh cilantro and used Cilantro paste


Directions

1. In Large sauce pan or pot over medium-high heat, cook oil 30 sec. or until heated. Add beef. Cook until cooked through, stirring occasionally. Remove from pan; drain, if desired.

2. In same sauce pan, cook onions, peppers, zucchini, mushrooms and garlic until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally (5 min).

3. Stir in next 6 ingredients and cooked meat. Add up to 1 cup water to thin soup, if desired. Cover; bring soup just to a simmer (do not let boil). Reduce heat to medium-low. Let simmer 20 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in cilantro and parsley. Cover; let simmer 5 min. more. Garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Soup can be stored up to 5 days in the refrigerator or frozen.
