My favorite soups are the crazy ones! Those with a lot of ingredients! It’s just a melting pot of flavors. Check out this amazing southern style cabbage soup.

You’ll Need:

1 small head of chopped cabbage.
2 lbs of lean ground beef.
2 cans of stewed or diced tomatoes.
1 can of rotel.
2 (8 oz) cans of tomato sauce.
1 large chopped onion.
4 stalks of finely chopped celery.
1 small finely chopped bell pepper.
Diced potatoes.
2 tbsp of salsa (optional).
Knorr beef broth (3 cups).
Cayenne pepper.
Chili powder.
4 cloves of garlic.
Paprika.
A pinch of salt.
Black pepper.
A dash of Tony Chachere’s creole.
A dash of Old Bay seasoning.
A dash of salt-free Mrs Dash.

How to:

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and sauté the celery, onion, bell pepper and garlic and remove from the skillet.

In the same skillet, brown the ground beef and drain off the grease.

Toss the cabbage in 4 tbsps of butter until tender then add the rest of the ingredients and cook until potatoes are soft.

In a large pot, mix all of the ingredients together and cook until the potatoes are done.

Enjoy!

Easy, peasy and yummy! The thing about this soup, is that I never use the same ingredients twice! Feel free to add anything you like such as green beans, corn, lentils or any other vegetable.
