This was my entry for a cooking contest on another site, from several years ago. The soup has a wonderful Tex-Mex influence that’s perfect for warming up on a chilly evening. It features premium sirloin beef, fiber-rich white beans and a trio of fresh oven-roasted peppers for extra flavor. It has a fair amount of “heat”, so adjust the peppers and seasonings to suit your own taste buds. You can stretch the servings a bit more by adding more fresh or frozen vegetables if you like, such as chopped celery, pearl onions, corn, or green beans.

How to Make Spicy Beef and Bean Soup with Oven-Roasted Peppers


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Cut poblano pepper, bell pepper and jalapeno pepper in half; discard seeds. Rub olive oil on the skins of all the peppers, and place on a baking sheet with the skin side facing up. Roast in oven for 15 minutes at 400° or until skins just begin to blister.
  3. While peppers are roasting, mix together the garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, dried basil, and salt. Rub the seasoning blend on both sides of the sirloin steak. Heat olive oil in skillet, add the coated sirloin steak and brown on both sides over medium heat. Cut the browned beef into bite-size pieces and add to a Dutch oven or large stockpot.
  4. Remove roasted peppers from oven. When cool enough to handle, cut Poblano and bell peppers into bite-size pieces, and mince the jalapeno pepper. Add peppers to stockpot.
  5. Add vegetable broth, water, beans, fresh basil, and A-1 Texas Mesquite marinade to the stockpot, and stir a few times. Cook soup over medium-low heat for 30 to 45 minutes or until beef is done throughout, stirring occasionally.
