Hamburger Soup

This is something that my family loves and somewhat resembles chili. I started making this a few years ago and I seem to always change it up a bit every time I make it. I thought today would be a perfect day to make it for everyone when they came in from hunting.  This is a soup that you can put in the crock pot or finish it off on the stove top.

  • 1 lb ground beef, cooked on stove top.
  • 3 carrots, peeled
  • 3 peppers (yellow, green, and red)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 pouch (about 2 tbsp) tomato paste
  • 1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes (you can use plain or use some with seasoning)
  • 1 cup/can of water
  • 1 32oz beef stock container
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

I chop everything and dump it in my crock-pot and let it cook on high for about 5-6 hours. It’s that easy, simple, and delicious.

As I said, I have changed this up numerous time. I’ve added jalapeños, potatoes, celery is another good one to add in.  Occasionally, I will add in a few red pepper flakes  or some paprika to give it a bit of extra kick. I’ve also added in some hot sauce before. You can take this basic recipe and make it your own. Have fun with it!
