    Default Taco Soup w Bacon and Cactus

    Taco Soup w Bacon and Cactus


    Recipe Description
    I've been looking for foods that help diabetes lately, and cactus is a good food for stabilizing blood sugar. It tastes like green beans to me. I buy the type that's in a jar with serrano peppers; I'm not ambitious enough to attack a whole cactus leaf just yet. It's really cheap and very healthy.
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    1 hour 20 minutes
    Ingredients:
    Lb Hamburger (93% lean)
    2 Slices Bacon
    onion, Chopped
    cup Sliced Jalapeno
    2 TBSP Minced Garlic
    1 Cup Chopped Cactus w Serrano Peppers
    1 Can Whole Tomatoes
    1 Can Pinto Beans with Jalapenos or Black Eyed Peas with Jalapenos
    1 Handful Baby Carrots, Quartered or equivilant amount of large carrots
    4 Potatoes, Chopped into Small Pieces
    1 Can Corn
    tsp Cumin
    tsp Red Pepper Flakes
    tsp Cayenne Pepper
    tsp Salt
    tsp Pepper
    2 tsp Chili Powder
    Lime juice (to taste)
    Tabasco sauce (to taste)
    Serves:Directions:
    1. Cook hamburger with onion, garlic, jalapenos, and cactus. Drain.
    2. Cook bacon in sauce pan, add to hamburger mixture. Not, too crispy, it should still be fatty-white.
    3. In large stockpan, combine all ingredients and cook for 1 hour, or until potatoes and carrots are tender. Stir occasionally. Add Tabasco and lime juice to taste. Great with buttered cornbread

    This recipe piqued my interest. We've eaten cactus from a jar. It reminds me of a mild green chili. Thanks for sharing!
