Mexican Pasta and Kale Soup

I just threw this together the other day and everyone loved it. I was told to BE SURE to write out how I made it. (They know me- and if it isn't typed up, it isn't remembered! ;) 

1 quart of broth
1 quart of home-canned tomatoes, pureed
1 pack of taco seasoning (or homemade)
 2 cups cooked ground beef
1 bell pepper & 1 large onion chopped (cook with the ground beef)
1 T chili powder
2 t cumin
1 t garlic powder
1/2 oregano 
1 bay leaf
2 cups elbow macaroni
1 bundle of kale, chopped
Tapatio sauce

Brown meat with the onion and pepper. Drain. Add liquids and seasonings.
Bring liquids, seasonings, and meat to a simmer. Add kale and simmer for about 5 minutes. 
Add pasta and simmer, covered for 8 to 10 more minutes. 
Serve with Tapatio and cornbread.

I love kale, specially fried up with some onions and garlic in a little lard! ;-)
