Tortellini Chili

I loved that this recipe was easy to prepare and was pretty delicious. It had more of a soup consistency to it than chili, but it was still good.  AND it made me decide that next time I make my lasagna soup, instead of noodles I am going to use tortellini. YUM! 

1 lb. tortellini
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
1 lb. ground beef
32 ounces chicken broth
15 oz can rotel
1 can red beans
1 can black beans
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Pour olive oil in a pan and add in onions and garlic. Saute for a few minutes.  Add ground beef and cook until browned. Drain beef and tortellini.  In a large pot mix meat, broth, tomatoes, beans, cumin, garlic salt, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir in tortellini.  Heat for 10 minutes until hot.
