Hodgepodge Soup

I think we all know it's soup weather!

I like anything quick and when my friend Jan gave me this recipe, I knew it would fit into those categories...

And it's delish as well! 

If you can brown burger, chop celery and onions, and open a few cans...add a little bit of this and'll have a tasty and filling meal ready to enjoy. 

This is sort of a 'dressed up' chili...

I served ours with grilled cheese, but a salad would be nice too.

Do hope you'll enjoy it soon!  

This makes a large batch (about 10 servings) so know that it freezes nicely if you want to save some for another time...

Recipe is easily cut in half (or 3rds is easier) also...


1-1/2 lbs. ground beef 
3/4 c. onion, chopped
1-1/2 c. celery, chopped
1 tsp. garlic powder 
(or use some fresh minced garlic)
3 cans (10.75 ozs each) condensed minestrone soup
1 can condensed tomato soup 
1 lg. can (30 ozs) pork and beans, undrained
2 c. water
1/2 tsp. dried oregano 
1 Tb. Worcestershire sauce
salt & pepper to taste 

Brown ground beef, onion, celery and garlic (powder). Add soups, pork and beans, water, oregano, Worcestershire sauce and salt & pepper. Simmer 15 - 20 minutes. 
Serve with sandwich, salad or cheese and crackers. 

(Soup does freeze nicely) 

Yield: about 10 - 12 servings
