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

  1. Brown onion, garlic and ground beef. Cook until done and onions are softened.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.
