Red Bean Soup with Ground Beef and Chorizo

I created this soup to use up ground beef and chorizo I had left from last night's dip, and 1/2 a green pepper I had. I also usually have plenty of dried beans on hand.

I just threw in a little of this and a little of that.

oil
1/2 onion, minced
1/2 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups water
1 small (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup dried red beans, cooked til tender
salt and pepper to taste
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup ground beef/chorizo blend (optional)

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onion and green pepper til softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook another minute or so.

Stir in remaining ingredients (except potato and meat mixture) and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered, for 10-20 minutes.

Stir in potatoes and meat mixture and simmer another 15 minutes or so, or til potatoes are tender.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d714/d223/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
