In a large pot prepare a rue by saute'ing your onion, carrot, celery, garlic and olive oil. Once you can smell all of these ingredients add your beef broth and can of tomatoes. Turn your heat up to high and add the rest of your ingredients with the exception of your ground meat and pinto beans. Stir and after five minutes bring heat down and let simmer to develop flavors for about twenty minutes. 


While ingredients are simmering brown your ground beef then drain the fat and add with the rest of your ingredients. Finally, add in your pinto beans and let all of it come together covered for another 15-20 minutes more. Serves about four weightlifters. Enjoy.
