Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use ground turkey or chicken instead of ground beef?
Yes, you can substitute ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef if you prefer a leaner option.
Just be sure to cook it thoroughly and drain any excess fat.
Is the celery necessary, or can I omit it?
Celery is listed as an optional ingredient, so you can omit it if you don’t have it on hand or if you’re not a fan of celery.
The soup will still be flavorful without it.
Can I use other types of beans instead of kidney beans?
Yes, you can use other types of beans, such as black beans, pinto beans, or cannellini beans, in place of kidney beans based on your preference.
What can I use if I don’t have red wine vinegar?
If you don’t have red wine vinegar, you can substitute white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
It will provide a slightly different flavor but should work well in the recipe.
How do I adjust the spice level to my liking?
You can adjust the spiciness of the soup by increasing or decreasing the amount of chili powder and black pepper.
Start with the amounts listed in the recipe and add more if you prefer it spicier or reduce if you want it milder.
