Bean and rice soup is so good. Mmm…it’s like a taco, but it’s soup. Slurp. I served it with homemade sourdough, but it would be excellent with tortillas or tortilla chips, also. I <3 Taco Tuesday.

2 cups Mexican-seasoned taco “meat” (“meat” or cooked lentils + 2 tablespoons taco seasoning) I used leftover Taco Meat

4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups diced tomatoes
optional toppings: grated cheez, salsa, chopped cilantro, chopped onion
Slow Cooker Method
Place all ingredients in the crock of a slow cooker.
Place the lid on top and turn on the cooker.
Cook for 6 hours on low or 3 hours on high.
Serve with toppings.
Instant Pot Method
Place all ingredients in instant pot and cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.
Allow pressure to release naturally.
Serve with toppings.
This was absolutely fabulous. And, bonus, I used up that taco meat I had in a baggie in the freezer. It’s nice and spicy (at least it is with our homemade taco seasoning) and is a perfect fall or winter treat. I’m clinging to my cold-weather foods as spring is knocking at our door here in the South.
