Thoughtless Thursday: Beef and Salsa Soup

Okay, technically this should be Beef and Picante soup because I used the Pace Picante Sauce I had a chance to try via the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program.  I’ve always been a fan of Pace.  Love their commercials with the fresh fresh jalapenos.  Anyway it made for a fantastic soup.  Serves 4-6.  Just the right offering for this week’s Souper Sunday at Kahakai Kitchen!


  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 small poblano pepper, minced
  • 1 roasted red pepper, minced
  • 1 roma tomato, minced
  • 1 russet potato, diced
  • 1 box beef stock
  • 1 lb browned ground beef
  • 1 jar Pace picante sauce
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 can green beans
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
