“DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE TITLE! Your kids, hubby, wifey, and everyone will eat it. I have made triple batches and could not keep it in the house. It's very smooth, and easily eaten by anyone with or without teeth. :) Fights have started over the leftovers.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roughly chop the onion, pepper, and celery.
  2. Add the oil to a large stock pot and add the chopped vegetables, cooking until soft.
  3. Add the beef and cook until browned.
  4. Add the tomatoes and refried beans with the garlic, spices, and mix well.
  5. Stir in the stock (you can use bouillon cubes and omit some of the water to make this as a dip) and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
  7. Either use a stick blender or small batches into your food processor and puree the soup.
  8. Adjust the seasonings (I like mine A LOT spicier so I add more cayenne and some green chilies to the mix, sometimes a dash or two of Tabasco.).
  9. Serve with sour cream and tortilla chips.
  10. Freezes Well.
