My grandmother named this soup "Pretend Beef Stew" because, well, basically she messed up making beef stew one night and came up with this. I've added veggies I like, but you can add whatever vegetables you like. Be creative; add some bell peppers or hot peppers, maybe use pulled chicken and chicken broth instead of the beef! Have fun with it!
