Hamburger Vegetable Soup With Cheese

Good Ol' Hamburger Vegetable Soup!  My dear Grandma used to make a soup very similar for us when I was a child growing up. This soup has all the feels for me. The warm tomato broth and simple carrots and potatoes. Ohhh... SO lovely and comforting! It is an inexpensive one too at only $7.74 for the entire pot! It serves 8 so that is less than a dollar per serving! You and I both know that is becoming more important as grocery costs contiune to become more expensive every day. Also it is very customizable. If you have some veggies you need to use or that were on sale. Throw them in! Do you have a recipe that takes you back or is sentimental? Let me know! Lets talk recipes!  Enjoy your kitchen!

April 2022 Most Popular Post

Hey Friends! Aprils most popular post, meaning the post with the most visits is Navajo Tacos! I cant say I blame you! This is very popular in my family too! Have a great weekend!  Enjoy your kitchen!  My family really loves Navajo Tacos! Some of the children have asked for this for their birthday dinners. Is a Navajo Taco an actual taco. No I don't think it is. A Navajo Taco is actually Indian fry bread topped with Chili and toppings typical of a taco like shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese. sour cream. olives and guacamole. You can use your favorite homemade chili or canned chili. Whichever you prefer. (Be watching for my quick and easy chili recipe coming soon!)
