"Wow! Mom, you made this soup?" Used 32 oz broth, 1 can of cheddar cheese soup instead of Velveeta, and didn't add the milk because it was thin enough for my taste.
Love this soup!!
This is really good. I am not one to use a crock pot so I did this all on the stove top. very good and simple with a lot of flavor. Took about 2 hours.
I didn't have ground beef so I substituted ground turkey, and I am gluten free so I substituted gluten free flour. It was wonderful, just a little peppery for me.
Loved it. Very easy to make and almost all things were on hand. My husband, who doesn't like soup, even liked this. I didn't have basil so I used some Italian seasoning, had to use beef broth and used 93/7 beef. It was great! Will make again!
