The Mimi Moto is a forced air gasifier stove. By gasifying wood instead of burning it directly (like on an open fire) the extracted gasses burn as a nice, clean flame. Smokehouse BBQ Pellets make an ideal fuel for this set-up and one-pot meals make for easy clean-up. Taco Soup takes all the flavors a taco offers and eliminates the need for counter space from the equation. Easy to vary for your liking, the protein can be made from any kind of ground or chopped meat to a vegetarian protein like tempeh or tofu.
MIMI MOTO TACO SOUP
1-2 Pounds ground or finely chopped meat of your choice
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 Small Onion, Diced
1 - 14 Ounce Can of Diced Tomatoes
1 Packet of Taco Seasoning or 2 Tablespoons of Homemade Taco Seasoning
1 - 4.5 Ounce Can of Diced Green Chiles
1 Cup of Corn
2 Cans of Pinto Beans, Drained
1/2 Cup Sliced Black Olives
2 Cups Broth (Chicken, Vegetable or Beef)
Crushed Tortilla Chips
Place Smokehouse BBQ Pellets in the small burn chamber to the fill line.
Ignite pellets using small pieces of wood and lighting fluid, some kind of fire starter, or a blow torch.
Once the fire is ignited, turn the knob to 4, and preheat a large cast iron pot.
If using ground beef, olive oil is not needed. With leaner meats, add olive oil and onions, saute 5 minutes or until meat begins to brown.
Add diced tomatoes and saute an additional 5 minutes.Add taco seasoning and saute an additional 2 minutes. Add green chiles, corn, beans, olives and broth.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Lower fan to power 1 and simmer 10-15 minutes to thicken soup.
Serve with garnishes of your choice!
