With January being soup month, I thought I would sneak in one more soup recipe.
A short post today, but a delicious one.
And I also love a rich broth, which this soup provides.
Just the little bit of hot sauce added to this soup is amazing. I will definitely be making this again, and again, and again.
This soup will be marked as one of my favorites, for sure.
I made this soup in the morning, and by the time it was done I had to be at my grandson's awards ceremony, which meant meeting with my daughter. We went to the ceremony, and from there we had to do a little shopping, of course.
It was one of these:
Daughter: "Do you want to run to Wal Mart with me real quick?"
Me: "Sure." You did notice the "real quick", right?
The whole time I'm in Wal Mart I'm thinking about my soup. Everything I looked at reminded me of my soup, so I bought a box of Cheez-It/baby swiss to eat with my soup, if I ever make it home. An hour later we are heading back to my car, which I left parked at my daughter's job.
Daughter: "Have you ever been to the Red Rambler?"
Daughter: "Do you want to stop in? I'll buy you a coffee."
Oh my goodness, another stop!! But can I ever turn down coffee?? Heavens no. And my daughter was treating MMMEEEE....
The coffee shop that my daughter took me too; let's just say they would sweep Starbucks under the rug. Excellent coffee!! And I will for sure go back.
Spicy Potato Soup
1 lb. ground chuck
4 c. peeled cubed potatoes (1/2 inch cubes)
1 small onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 cans (8 oz. each) tomato sauce (I used 2 - 8 oz and 1 - 15 oz.)
4 cups beef broth (I used beef soup base, following directions for 4 c.)
crushed black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce (I used Tabasco)
In a Dutch oven, brown ground chuck with celery and onion. Do not drain. Add potatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, and hot pepper sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender and the soup has thickened slightly. Serves 6 - 8
Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy
