Recipe adapted from Spend with Pennies

- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can Rotel tomatoes

- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1 package taco seasoning mix
In a large pot on medium heat, brown ground beef with the onion until there’s no more pink. Drain off any excess fat or liquid.

Vegetarian Bean and Barley Vegetable Soup
Recipe adapted from The Spruce Eats
- ½ of a large onion, diced
- 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp. oil
- 2 ribs celery, diced
- 2 medium carrots, diced
- 8 cups water
- 1 cup pearled barley (uncooked)
- 1 cup pinto or white beans
- 1/3 cup tomato paste or crushed tomatoes
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. pepper
- ½ tsp. basil
- ½ tsp. oregano or Italian seasoning
- ½ tsp. thyme
- 2 large bay leaves
In a large soup or stock pot, sauté the onion and garlic in the oil for 1-2 minutes.
Add the celery and carrots and cook for 3-5 minutes.
Add water and the rest of the ingredients. Bring mixture to a simmer.
Once it is simmering, reduce heat to medium-low and cover.
Let soup simmer for 30-60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until barley is soft.
Remove bay leaves and serve.
You can also add other vegetables into the soup. Add ½ c of whatever you like at the same time you add the celery and carrots.
