I made this soup today for Sunday Dinner and it was delicious!!! I followed the recipe to the tee with some minor changes. Instead of six cups of water, I used four cups of beef broth and two cups of water. Using the beef broth cuts down on the amount of salt and seasonings. Oh, and I left out the celery. I don't like celery so, I used green bell pepper instead. This will definitely be my go to soup recipe for the Winter!

Another one to go in the tried and true folder. Great soup. The first bowl I had I added the parmesan cheese. The second bowl I used mozzarella.The third bowl I used both! All very delicious. Highly recommended. Don't forget to use the garlic salt.

LOVED this recipe! However, I tweaked a bit. I subbed the hamburger meat with lean ground turkey (always do). Instead of adding any water at all, I put in 4 cups of beef stock and 2-3 cups of Clamato tomato juice--the juice was the magical ingredient here! I also added 3 cloves of minced garlic, red pepper chili flakes and a bit of cayenne to pack on a little heat! And then when it came to serving time I chose the healthier route and topped with Greek yogurt. This soup was SO full of flavor, my family loved it. I will definitely make again! :)

I made this Hamburger soup with a few changes, I used eight cups of water instead because I wanted to add a lot of veggies and didn't want to not have enough liquid.. I also doubled all my spices. It was fantastic. A friend of the family came over and she tried it and I ended up giving the recipe to four different people.. I loved this soup and am making it again tonight.. This recipe is very easy to change to taste, adding whatever vegies you like! I also added mushrooms ten mins before serving.. delish!

Made this soup last night, and it was great. I followed the recipe to a T and next time I make it (which I definitely will) I will probably leave out the sliced celery, since I am not a big fan of cooked celery. I'll just go with the celery leaves. Thanks for posting.

YUMMY...Very good ..left out the salt, figured the soup mix and soy had plenty of that already..I cooked noodles seperately though, to keep them firm, hate soggy noodles..LOL people are so funny, they change the recipe, then give it a lower rating as they didn't care for the taste..LOL too funny..

Yum. This was great comfort food! The only changes were that I didn't have tomato sauce, so I used tomato juice and reduced it all down a bit longer. Also, I added a splash of red wine and a splash of worcestershire sauce. Used some beef broth and some water. Thanks for posting!

I've made this recipe several times for team potlucks at tournaments. There are never any leftovers and I *always* get asked for the recipe.

This recipe was exactly what I was looking for on a chilly night. I did add a can of cut green beans and an extra can of tomato sauce.
