This recipe came from my Aunt many, many years ago but has just recently become a favorite in my home. Even my picky daughters love this soup! It's chock full of vegetables and warms you right up on these cold winter days. It's easy to make and very filling. Leftovers are wonderful too!
1 lb. ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 med. onion, chopped
2-3 c. water
3/4 c. celery, diced
3/4 c. carrots, diced
2 large potatoes, diced
1-8 oz. can tomato sauce
3 fresh tomatoes, chopped (I used canned diced tomatoes)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper (or to taste)
pinch of basil
1 tsp. chili powder
Brown ground beef (turkey) in a large pot and drain. Add remaining ingredients and heat on high until it comes to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to simmer for about 1 hour, or until vegetables are soft. Enjoy with a salad and bread!
