I forgot to mention that we had the most wonderful soups at the scrappy on Saturday. Here is one of the recipes that Desi brought. Thank you Desi! Try it you'll love it!
Southwest 3 bean cheese soup
2 lbs of ground beef
2 lbs of Velveeta
1 can tomato soup
1 can stewed tomato
1 can kidney beans* (*drained but not rinsed off for all the beans)
1 can black eye peas with jalapenos*
1 can pinto (or black) beans*
2 can rotel
1 can corn
Fry beef in stew pot and drain off the grease. Pour all the ingredients into the pot and stir. Let it simmer for 30 minutes on low. Add the Velveeta cheese and stir till the cheese has completely melted. Serve with chips
This soup makes a lot. What I like to do is make it in advance with out the Velveeta and freeze into containers. I take out what I need and when defrosted I just add Velveeta to the pot and serve when hot.
Anyone have a great soup recipe they would love to share? Especially now that the weather is getting cooler. I love it!
