Beef Vegetable Soup
This is a very easy to make soup. You simply toss a bunch of stuff in your crock pot or dutch oven and cook it slowly for a few hours. The result is a delicious, comforting and hearty soup for those cold and rainy days.
1 lb. browned ground beef (ground beef cooked in a pan and drained its fat)
1 tall can V-8 juice
1 large can diced tomatoes (2 cups)
1 can of water (use the empty one from the tomatoes)
2 Tbspn. dried onion soup mix
1 Tbspn. Mc Cormick Chile Mix
1 large potato diced
1 yellow squash diced
1 bag frozen veg. soup mix
lots of shredded red cabbage
Combine and cook in large pot for 3 - 4 hours at low heat. (If you use a crock pot cook it on low for 4 hours)
Substitutions: As some of these ingredients are hard / impossible to find in Chile, here are a few tips to substitute them.
- 1 Can V-8 (I know they sell this in Chile but can get a little bit pricey. You can substitute with plain tomato juice.)
- Onion Soup Mix (use onion and garlic powder plus pepper)
- Chili mix (use chili powder. if you cannot find it, you can make you own mix using this link)
- Frozen Veg soup mix (use any kind of frozen vegetables mix you like)
