This recipe is my go to when I don’t feel like cooking, or I need something quickly. I have had friends say that they don’t like vegetables, but they like this soup. Lucy and her family don’t care for so many tomatoes so they only put half of them in it. It is easy to change up to your liking.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 14.5 oz can cut green beans
- 1 15.25 oz can sweet corn
- 1 15 oz can ranch style beans
- 2 14.5 oz cans Italian style diced tomatoes
- 1 pkg ranch dressing mix
- 2 cups water
In a large pot, brown ground beef. Drain and return to pot. Add the remaining ingredients without draining any of the cans. Stir, bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer for at least 15 minutes but 45 minutes is better.
The Hardworking Husband likes for me to take things I make and change them up a bit. So I took this recipe and made Shepherd’s Pie. Here are the instructions for this variation.
Preheat oven to 350º. Make mashed potatoes as you normally would. All the ingredients are the same except drain the corn and green beans and don’t add the water. Add about 4 Tbsp of brown gravy mix. Stir to combine and heat until thickened. Pour mixture into a 9×13 pan. Spread mashed potatoes over mixture. Put pan into oven. Heat for about a half hour or until it is bubbling on the sides and potatoes are hot.
