This is good but tastes even better if you add a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. Read More

This was ok. I added a LOT of spices to it because it was way too bland. I added garlic powder salt lemon pepper oregano and basil. Read More

This is a great basic soup. While it is a bit bland it lends itself to many seasoning opportunities. I added half a bag of frozen hash brown potato cubes near the end of the cooking time because my kids like potatoes in their veggie soup. Also some hot pepper sauce added lots of flavor. Read More

I have made a soup similar to this for years but I use browned stew meat (cut into smaller pieces) instead of the hamburger. Read More

This was so much better than I had anticipated. I figured it would be so easy but not so good. I used tomato juice and seasoned with cajun seasoning lemon pepper and S&P. I definitely will use this recipe quite a bit since it's so economical and delicious. Read More

This is a great recipe. I use browned stew meat instead of ground beef. If you want more flavor try using Spicy V-8 Juice. Mmm-mmm! Read More
