  1. This is a hearty and healthy soup and falls in the category of Genius Foods for my children. I had to use ground chicken, as I had to go to the town market for the ground beef. It worked equally good. However, I added a splash of hot sauce to give it a spicy touch. I will be making this one again with the ground beef next time. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for trying out the recipe! I’m glad that you liked it. You can also make it with ground pork or ground turkey. It will come out delicious every time.

  2. Last week, the beef was on sale and so, we purchased a lot of ground beef exceeding our cooking necessity. So, this soup is perfect to dump in most of the ground beef and at the same time, I had the craving for the soup too. The soup came out thick and delicious, and it WAS a meal. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I make this soup regularly, as my picky kids are really fond of it. Stew meat is expensive in my market, so I buy thin cut steaks or ground beef. We call it the most healthy meal. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
