This hearty "delicious" ground beef soup was prepared using a box of Hamburger Helper, canned tomatoes (stewed and Rotel), beef broth, corn, green beans, carrots, zucchini, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, and black pepper.
I think this is our #1 all time family favorite and it's often requested for birthday dinners. It's the 'Bestest' because my daughter described it as such when she was little. This freezes well and I've added directions for that and for reheating.
I know there are a lot of potato soup recipes on here, but this is the best I have ever had. The onion flavor adds a little something extra, and it is so easy and delicious. Everyone loves this soup...even my incredibly picky roommate. It cooks for a while; if you have a crock pot, which I don't, you can let is simmer for a while and forget about it. Also, this can be doubled easily. I hope you all enjoy.
Got this out of quick cooking years ago and it is a really easy, fast tasting meal. Tastes like a pot pie :) Also you can sub turkey for chicken and I use already cooked cubed chicken and it's great on game days..
I can make this an all-day thing, but the results are a very tasty soup. I usually stop at the point where I have my chicken pulled and store it in the fridge for a while, and add it later when I cook the noodles. This is pretty much my own recipe, so feel free to adjust anyway you like.(I gave some to my Dad not long ago, and he said he liked it better than my Mom's. High praise!)A final note: I tend to always end up with a huge pot of soup of any kind - they "grow" on me throughout the process!
This goes together in a flash-and is really flexible for using ingredients on hand. You can either make this with noodles or dumplings, or leave them out. We like our soup salty, so adjust that to your taste.
I am publishing a series of recipes that use items from your pantry. These recipes are good for emergency survival, camping, job loss and other situations where surviving off staples may be needed. Most of these are also good as a quick dinner when you dont feel like cooking. Since these recipes require canned or packaged goods they may not be as good as if you use fresh - but feel free to substitute fresh for packaged.
The Stuff that dreams are made of...Don't let the DP turn you off, this soup is ADDICTING. Plus there's something about telling little kids it contains Dr.Pepper that makes them eat their dinner! Plus it's so easy!
