An AllRecipes recipe, via YAAPs
1 pound ground beef(I use ground turkey)
1 onion, chopped
4 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
4 cups cubed potatoes
3 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 Brown beef and onion, drain.
2 Add water, pepper, potatoes, tomato sauce, salt, and
Tabasco sauce. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer
one hour or until potatoes are tender and soup is thick
I only used a 1/2 tsp of pepper and few drops of hot sauce (to up the odds that the kids would eat it) and put the bottle out on the table for whoever might want more. I used tomato sauce I had made from our garden, and I threw in green beans, mushrooms, and fresh corn off the cob at the end. Each kid found something within the soup that they were willing to eat! I served it with bread and “extras” (PBJ etc) so they could fill out their soup pickings with sandwiches, and everyone had a good meal (DH and I just gorged on the yummy soup). Seems like this soup could go in any direction depending on what you add to it. It was GOOOOOOOOOOOOD.
This soup recipe is from allrecipes.
It’s really, really good. You can add finely chopped raw veggies toward the end to boost the nutrition profile, and I added basil and thyme.
My comments: Quite tasty, easy to make, good keep-on-the-stove-all-day party-type soup. I throw in a bag of frozen veggies at the end, because that’s as exciting as I get. If the kids aren’t eating any, I’ll usually up the spices. Oh, and I use powdered chile peppers, because that’s what we have.
