  • 16 oz beef bone broth
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped red onion cilantro and shredded cheddar cheese for topping

  • Here comes the bone broth! Pour it in, but do it in three batches, allowing each addition to simmer and meld the flavors together.

  • Don’t forget the crushed tomatoes and kidney beans. While some low-carb recipes skip beans, we’re keeping them for their fiber and nutrients.
