I made this soup wanting something hearty, but dairy-free, and mexican flavors are one of my favorite kind of meals! This is a new family favorite! And of course super easy. I would even think this would work fine in the Instapot to cook the meat and soup ingredients all at the same time.
This one was inspired by all the non-meat-loving-women out there. You are not necessarily “vegetarian,” but you could claim it based off of the fact you just do not like to eat meat. Like my mother! This is not a vegetarian soup because I use beef bone broth in it and is the key source of protein in this soup. Beans are also packed full of protein and fiber. If you are one of those I-could-be-a-vegetarian-but-I -still-eat-animal-stuff-people, then this soup is for you. You can also add 1 pound of ground meat to this if you are not opposed to eating animal meat 🙂
