Excellent Diabetic Recipe
Note: Do not drain grease if you are diabetic.
1 pound ground chuck (80/20)
1 cup diced onion
½ cup Salsa or Picante Sauce
14 1/2-oz. can beef broth
Taco Seasoning Mix (recipe below)
2 teaspoons Instant Minced Onion
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more if you like)
1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon minced garlic from jar
½ teaspoon ground cumin
In a large frying pan, cook ground chuck and onion until no pink remains in meat and onion is translucent. If you are trying to lower your sugar, do not drain off the grease. Add salsa, beef broth and Taco Seasoning Mix and heat until hot. I find that the following Taco Seasoning Mix is milder than the store-bought kind. A cup of this soup with ground chuck 80/20 will take my sugar reading down. Makes 1 quart.
