This So Easy Hamburger Soup was thrown together last minute while I was cold, in a hurry and to be completely honest, the tail end of the shopping cycle. :-) My pantry was looking a little bare and my hungry crew would want something to eat.
You wanna know what was even better? Everyone LOVED it! It tasted great and it was extremely frugal. F.R.U.G.A.L. I think it cost our family less than $4 dollars to make and it fed our family of six not only supper, but a few of us had it for leftovers the next day.
How to make so easy hamburger soup
I made it in the crock pot (of course!) but you can cook it on the stove. I love the whole dump the ingredients in and walk away concept. (Which I am sure you gathered from our taco soup and Spicy Sausage Soup!)
Do you have a slow cooker at home? I was talking with someone through social media who did not have a slow cooker. Do me a favor, will ya?
If you don't have a slow cooker you should get one. I use my slow cooker a few times a week. Without question. (Ask my family.) :-) Here are a few ideas for a slow cooker. There are programmable ones and simple ones. I personally go for the middle of the road slow cookers.
The only trick to this soup is to not add the shells until about 45 minutes before you are going to eat. You don't want the shells to get too soggy. Nobody wants soggy shells. Nobody.
Think you will like this soup? You can try it with dumplings too. Delicious!
