Macarena Soup

Submitted by: BTVMADS

Introduction

This used to have a different name, but in 1997 my family jokingly re-named it for the dance craze -- and now we don't remember the real name!!!!

This is a hearty soup loaded with lots of herbs and spiced for flavor -- no added fat needed! Plus, it's very high in protein to really fill you up. It's perfect on a cold winter's night!

Ingredients

    ~1 lb lean ground beef
    ~1 chopped onion
    ~ 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
    ~2 carrots, sliced
    ~6 c. beef broth (low sodium is better)
    ~1 Tbsp chili powder
    ~1 tsp cumin
    ~1/2 tsp oregano
    ~1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    ~1 can diced tomatoes
    ~1 and 1/2 cup elbow macaroni (I used Whole Wheat)
    ~Salt to taste, Tabasco to taste

Directions

Brown the beef in a soup pot. Drain the extra fat.

Add the onions, pepper and carrots and saute until transparent.

Add the herbs, tomatoes and worcestershire sauce, then the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 10-15 min.

Raise the heat to a boil again, add the macaroni, and cook until the pasta is tender.

Add salt if desired -- I think the beef broth gives enough salt though! If you're into spicy, spike the soup with a teaspoon of Tabasco sauce, or let folks garnish their own.

Makes 8 servings. Serve with a crusty roll for a perfect, hearty meal.
