Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup all purpose white flour *optional, see note below
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 2 medium yellow potatoes (about 10 ounces or 2½ cups total)
  • 3 cups water *see note below
  • 1 tbsp better than bouillon (beef or vegetable flavor will work) *see note below
  • 2 10 ounce cans Mild Rotel (diced tomatoes with chiles) (you may also use regular diced tomatoes)
  • 1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 cup banana peppers (from the a jar) *optional
  • 1 12 ounce bag frozen green beans

Instructions

  • Brown onion, garlic and ground beef. Cook until done and onions are softened.
  • Sprinkle cooked beef with flour and stir until combined well and continue to cook for about 45 seconds.
    *This step is optional it just makes for a thicker broth which I personally love, but it tastes just as good without this step its just more broth-y so it's up to you! It doesn't change points, but will change the calorie count and nutrional info just a bit.
  • Add potatoes, carrots, water, better than bouillon, rotel, tomato sauce, worcestershire sauce, and seasonings. Bring to a boil and then simmer covered for about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in banana peppers(if using) and frozen green beans. Continue to simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until carrots and potatoes are fork tender. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
  • This soup freezes super well and reheats well too. To freeze cool completely and store in freezer safe bags/containers for up to 3 months. Thaw before reheating on stove top.

*Better than Bouillon is in just about every grocery store I've ever been to. It's located near the cartons/cans of broth and stock. If you don't want to use it or can't find it you may just use 3 cups of beef broth instead of the 3-1/2 cups water and 1 tbsp bouillon. I prefer using it for a few reasons, but the biggest reason is because its crazy flavorful and takes recipes to the next level. 
*Adding the flour step is optional it just makes for a thicker broth which I personally love, but it tastes just as good without this step its just more broth-y (Eric loves it this way) so it's up to you! It doesn't change points, but will change the calorie count and nutritional info just a bit.
