I have mentioned before how he is such a “meat and potatoes” guy and the only way he will eat soup is if it’s thick and hearty. Well, this soup fits the bill- it’s loaded! But I love it because it’s loaded with good things and you can add even more vegetables if you’d like.
In a large skillet, brown beef with onion and garlic until beef is no longer pink. Drain grease from beef and dump into a large stock pot. Place stock pot on stovetop and add remaining ingredients. Turn heat up to medium high and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover with lid, and simmer for 35-45 minutes.
