Soul Soup

What do you get when you mix one Camilla plus the few things she had left in the fridge? Oh right... soul soup: A hearty, comforting stew that works as either a side dish or the main meal. Not exactly what I'd had in mind to beat the heat on an 80 degree day, but I pretended it's winter and ate away!

1 lb ground beef or buffalo
1 onion finely chopped
1 bell pepper diced
8 cups chicken broth
2 cubes vegetable buillon
1 cup marinara or tomato sauce
5 tomatoes, quartered
2 tbsp garlic
Curry powder
Any array of comforting spices you feel fit to throw in

Pour chicken broth and tomato sauce into a large pot. Heat on medium. Once boiling, add in tomatoes, garlic, curry, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. In a large frying pan on medium heat, fry ground beef or buffalo in small pieces until completely well done. Add into soup mix. Fry onion and bell pepper in the same pan about 5 minutes on low to medium heat and add to the soup. Stir until everything's well combined. If more taste is desired, add more curry and cumin, or some hot sauce to spice it up! Enjoy!
