  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 very large green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 very large onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 3 3/4 lb lean ground beef (95-97% fat-free)
  • 1 (28 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 (26 oz) cans reduced-sodium condensed tomato soup
  • 2 (15 oz) cans black beans (such as Bush's "Seasoned Recipe")
  • 1 (30 oz) can light red kidney beans
  • 1 pinch each of salt and black pepper, to taste


In a large soup kettle or pan, add canola oil. Over moderate heat, sauté green pepper until soft. Add onion and garlic, and cook until onion is translucent.

Add ground meat, and break apart into very small pieces, browning the meat quickly. Stir in all other ingredients and bring to a low boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes, or more time, as needed.*


Can replace lean ground beef with lean ground turkey.

If more heat is desired, serve with chili powder, crushed red peppers and/or hot sauce on the side.
