Taco Salad Soup

Taco style salads are the mainstay of my summers. During cold days, who wants to eat salad?

Why not salad soup?

1/4 lb ground beef, cooked
1 bunch kale or other bitter greens, chopped.
3 tomatoes
1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
several green onions, chopped
a few bell peppers, chopped
4 cups beef stock

Chop all your veggies. I like to do bigbarches in the beginning of te week so I can throw meals together. Sauté red onion in lard on medium heat for a few minutes, then add garlic. Continue cooking until onions turn clear, then add rest of ingredients. Add filtered water if needed to thin, and bring to a simmer. Simmer briefly and season with salt and your organic taco seasoning,(Cumin, paprika, coriander, etc.). Serve with freshly shredded cheddar and sour cream (yogurt!)


And yes, there is lettuces in this soup, it works! Kale, spinach and other hard greens should be cooked slightly anyway before eating, and everything tastes good in a taco.
