I made this recipe on 1/18/12 for our dinner.And due to what I had on hand, a few changes were made to the recipe and they are as follows.Instead of the canned beans, the same amount of leftover white beans were used. I didn't have a 28 ounce can of tomatoes,so 2 14.5 ounce cans were used. And to give the beef a bit more flavor,the onion was added as the beef was browning.About 1 1/2 hours into the cooking time a " Quality Taste Test " was done and I realized I forgot to add the garlic,so I added about a teaspoon or so of garlic powder.And at that time I also added another 3/4 teaspoon of chili powder.This recipe turned out to be a " Keeper ". Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling : ) "
This is a very delicious soup!! I used beef broth and left out the tomato sauce. We don't like alot of tomatoey soups but the diced tomatoes were a great fit. I made alot so I'm going to be freezing some and eating some for lunch all week. Thanks for a great and easy soup.
Very good recipe with an unusual taste. We really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recipe.
Great soup! So easy to throw together and with things (except for the cabbage) that I would usually have on hand. I think next time I will add a second can of the northern beans. YUMMY.
A good hearty soup for a chilly evening. Everything went together very quickly and the reward was a soup we will have often. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Chef du Jour. Made for My-3-Chefs 2009.
My husband loved it! The soup had a hearty flavour with a tinge of hot spice. I have made this twice already. This recipe is a keeper for me. Thank you!
