Yet another dinner favorite to add to your weekly rotation, any time of year. This soup can be made with ground beef or sausage, either way the blend of spices makes this soup warm and delicious. Plus it’s totally leftover friendly.
I highly recommend this easy dinner favorite as a meal prep recipe as well. The rice soaks up all the flavor from the juicy meat, the savory seasonings, plenty of pepper, tomatoes and dried herbs. Sauté it all up, add chicken broth, put the lid on and walk away from it. Half and hour later, you’ve got a filling, healthy and super tasty dinner.
Short, sweet to the point. That’s this great soup in a nutshell. Try it out and see for yourself! I love to make this soup in my dutch oven. Check out THIS sturdy and affordable one that I love!
