It is a chili...tomato base soup...without beans. It is a soup that my family enjoys a great deal. A variety of meats work in this soup, such as turkey, beef, or deer meat. Can also top with shredded cheddar cheese when serving. Garnish with parsley.

I was looking for a recipe like this... hate beans but love the flavor of chili. I added some extras (chili powder cumin cayenne bay leaf brown sugar) and it made a wonderful base. My boyfriend said that something was lacking though... apparently potatoes aren't enough to make up for beans. Read More

I used bacon grease and added green peppers and a shallot w/extra garlic when veggies were almost soft. I removed most of veggies to brown meat and drained grease then added veggies back to meat and added 1 can of potatoes(diced small) and 1 can of corn and chili seasonings w/ a little worcestershire sauce w/ the rest of the ingredients. I used a lot less water just added till consistency suited me. Delicious!!!!!!! Read More

I'm wishing the author would've been a bit more specific....like should we drain the tomatos? Do we cook it covered or uncovered? I didn't drain the tomatos and brought it to a boil then turned down the heat and let it simmer uncovered. I also ended up adding quite a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up. It wasn't bad...it just needs something and I can't figure out what that is! I added more onion beef boullion and salt but it still tasted kind of bland. My husband added chili powder and he liked it that way. Read More
