Texas cowboy soup

Looking for a hardy soup everyone will love? Look no further than this on-the-range classic beloved by frontiersman and freezin’ femmes alike. It’s got a little bit of everything in it (plus bacon. How can you not love that?). Serve alongside hunks of homemade cornbread and you’ve got a spread worth drooling over. Yum!




Serves 8 to 10

6 slices bacon, chopped

1 1⁄2 lbs lean ground beef

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1 onion, chopped

2 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1⁄2 tsp salt    

1⁄4 tsp freshly ground black pepper        

2 baking potatoes, peeled and diced     

2 cans (14 to 19 oz) pinto beans, drained and rinsed

1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, drained

1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, with juice

4 cups beef stock   

1 can (14 oz) corn kernels, drained



If you can’t find canned tomatoes with green chiles, just use canned diced tomatoes and add a small can of chopped green chiles. Instead of canned corn, you can use 3 cups of frozen corn kernels. Thaw and drain before adding to soup.




1. In a large pot, sauté bacon over medium heat until starting to brown. Add ground beef and sauté, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, onion, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper; sauté until onion starts to soften, about 3 minutes.


2. Add potatoes, beans, both cans of tomatoes and stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are just tender, about 20 minutes. Add corn and simmer for 10 minutes.


3. Ladle into heated bowls and garnish with croutons.
