Default Another version of Taco Soup

I love to eat soups, but my husband would just as soon eat salad. We started the SBD together 2 weeks ago and are finding that P1 can be torturous! The worst part of it is trying to find foods that we can eat and agree on without eating the same thing over and over. I found this recipe on another board yesterday and tried it out today. As soon as he smelled it, he tossed his salad aside and ate 2 bowls. Absolutely yummy!!

Taco Soup -- P1

1 lb lean ground beef
1 jar roasted bell peppers (I cut up fresh bell peppers and cooked them with the beef to soften)
1 cup yellow onion (my addition to the recipe; cooked it with the beef to soften)
8 oz. salsa
1 to 2 cups V8 juice (I used tomato juice instead)
2 28 oz. cans whole plum/roma tomatoes (I used diced tomatoes)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
LF cheese or sour cream (garnish)

Brown the ground beef. While it's browning, add everything else to the pot. I like to cut up the bell peppers, squeeze the tomatoes (to break them up), and rinse and drain the black beans. Add as much or as little V8 as you like to get the consistency you want (more for soupier soup, less for stewier soup). Add the cooked beef to the pot and cook (should be more than a gentle simmer happening in the pot) for 15-20 minutes until you can stand it no more, then eat. Add cheese or sour cream if you like, but it's good on its own, too.
