I found this recipe on the Internet, but it was too high in fat. After experimenting, I created a more nutritious version, I often double this chili-like soup to freeze or to share with friends.

Your crew will chase away winter's chill with a spoon when you cook up this hearty soup from Brigitte Schultz of Barstow, California. "It has such a rich flavor...and it's full of nutritious vegetables and chunks of tender steak," she notes.
"This hearty soup calls for a lot of fresh herbs to enhance the flavor of the other ingredients," shares Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah. The aroma while it is cooking is absolutely wonderful. I like to serve steaming bowls alongside a green salad and baking powder biscuits."
Brimming with meat and vegetables, this full-bodied soup is sure to take the chill off frosty weather. Vary the veggies to make the most of your own garden plenty...and don't forget to add a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.
Convenient frozen veggies and hash browns make this meaty soup a snap to mix up. Simply brown the ground beef, then stir everything together to simmer all day. "It's wonderful served with bread and a salad," adds Carol Calhoun of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
