Hamburger Soup

Sometimes you just feel like a bowl of soup! Especially, when its chilly out. So, I made an easy hearty hamburger soup and allowed it to cook on low for 8 hours in my crock pot and it was mmmmmmm mmmmmmm good! The simple things in life are sometimes more pleasing then the extravagant. At least that’s how I felt while eating my bowl of soup. Nothing fancy here with this recipe but yummy veggies, extra lean beaf, and whole wheat elbow macaroni. 🙂
Ingredients
1 1/2 of Extra Lean Beef (97% lean and 4% fat is what I used)
1 Can of Diced Garlic Tomatoes (undrained)
1 Cup of Diced Potatoes
4 Stalks of Celery
1 Jalapeno Diced
1 Chopped Onion (I used sweet onion)
1 Can of Corn (drained)
1 Can of Green Beans (drained)
1 squash sliced
1/2 Cup of Shredded Carrots
1/2 Cup of Diced Mushrooms
1/4 Tsp of Pepper
1 Tsp of Garlic Powder
1 Tsp of Onion Powder
1 Tsp of Dried Basil
1 Tsp of Paprika
Beef Bouillon Cubes
Low Sodium Chicken Stock
1 Pack of Lipton Onion Soup
Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni
Brown your beef. In crock pot add 2 cups of water and 3 cups of chicken stock. Add packet of lipton onion soup and 4 beef bouillon cubes. Pour in tomatoes, green beans, and corn. Add the remaining veggies and spices (you can add more spice to liking). Allow to cook for the next 6 to 8 hours or you can cook on high for half the time. The last hour add your macaroni noodles and ENJOY!
