For a busy mom like me a slow cooker is a must. Us moms are always constantly on the go. So when I do it is if I’m going to have a busy day like running errands,appointments ,or cleaning my house a slow cooker is very convenient. Wake up early in the morning prep everything and put in my slow cooker on low so I can cook all day. I’m not worried to rush back to the house to cook dinner because it’s already cooking at home. I have mentioned before I love to cook soup in the wintertime. For this soup and a side of rice will go well with this. This soup is 347 calories for 1 1/2 cupThis is what you will need:
1 pound 95% lean ground beef
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
2/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
2(14.5 ounce) cans petite diced tomatoes
1 3/4 cups canned tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
freshly ground black pepper
heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the ground beef and salt,and cook, using a wooden spoon to break the meat into pieces as it browns, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the fat from The pan. Return the pan to medium low heat and add onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook, starring, until soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a slow cooker and add the broth tomatoes tomato sauce oregano and black pepper to taste. Cover and cook on high for four hours on low for eight hours.
Ladle the soup into six serving bowls top each with half a cup of rice serve hot.
