Instructions
  1. In a blender or food processor, gently purée tomatoes and the fresh basil on a low setting, just until smooth. I do this in two batches. Set aside.
  2. In a large stove top pot on medium high heat add olive oil and ground beef. Brown, stirring frequently — about 10 minutes. I use lean ground beef, so there’s not much fat to drain. Drain if there is an excessive amount of liquid.
  3. Stir in onions and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add spices, salt, green onions, and bell pepper. Stir well.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients (tomato paste, broth, puréed tomatoes and basil, bay leaf, lime juice, and beans). Sir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes (stirring occasionally).
  6. Remove bay leaf and serve with your favorite fixings!
