My mum used to make us this cheap, filling and spicy soup quite regularly. I now use it as a quick dinner on a cold evening or a warming light lunch.

I can't actually remember her exact recipe, but it's always nice to experiment and get things how you like them. Also I probably have a very different store cupboard to her, so I'll see what I can create. You should experiment too and get things just how you like them.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1-2 Onions
  • 250g Minced beef (good steak mince)
  • 1-2 Carrots
  • 1 stalk Celery
  • Some Roasted Peppers ( i use some from a jar for speed)
  • Handful Pasta shells/whatever pasta you like really but one that helps pick up the soup's a good idea
  • 900ml Beef Stock (either homemade or stock cubes)
  • 1-2 cloves Garlic or a dollop of Garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Puree/paste
  • 1 Fresh Chilli, chopped seeds in or out depending how hot you want it
  • small handful fresh Coriander
  • 1tsp Chilli powder, tsp Cumin and 1/2tsp cinnamon (or your own personal chilli spice mix)
  • a dash of Balsamic vinegar
  • Vegetable oil and butter for frying
I can't wait to try this! I have to watch my salt and with store bought/restaurant soups being mostly salt I'm always on the look out for a good recipe. Spicy is a great way to bring the flavor!
I like to put Orzo in my chili on occasion (way better than rice in my opinion), but this looks really good, too. I also need to start de-glazing when I brown meat for soups and stews. Good 'ible.
Thanks, hope you give it a try
Chili with the awesomeness of pasta! Genius! I love it :D
Thanks, not sure how much more soup I can manage before the contest closes though. <br>Next up, Stewed something!
You really are on a roll! I just love soups of all kind, so keep whatever you have coming!
