  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
  • 2 cans (28oz) no salt added fire roasted diced tomatoes (OR canned diced tomatoes)
  • 1 can (14.5oz) no salt added black beans, drained
  • 1 small can (4oz) green chiles (optional)

    • cilantro
    • fresh chopped onion
    • fresh jalapeño
    • 2% greek yogurt instead of sour cream

Step 1

Set a pot on medium high heat. Once hot, add oil, onions and garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes to caramelize the onions.

Step 2

Add ground meat and chop it up in the skillet as it cooks. Sprinkle in chili powder, paprika, oregano and cayenne. Continue cooking for another 2 minutes – the meat and onions should be fiery red and very fragrant.

Step 3

Reduce  the heat to medium, then add in the remaining ingredients and stir.  IF NEEDED, you can add in water if desired – add 1/4 cup of water until you reach your desired level of thickness.

Step 4

Bring the soup to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and cover and cook for 25 – 30 minutes.

Step 5

Season to taste with sea salt & pepper and enjoy! Garnish each individual serving and remember to account for the macros if so.
