Beefy Tomato Soup

Ground beef and macaroni add heartiness to this soup sent in by Patricia Staudt of Marble Rock, Iowa. It's nicely seasoned...and nicely priced, too, at 37 cents per bowl.
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

  • 3 cups water
  • 3/4 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder

    This is a wonderful, delicious and easy soup. I've been making it for a few years now. My nephew once said, "it's a party in my mouth!!!" when I served it to him!!!

    Very easy to make, but a little too simple in taste for me. Maybe add some veggies to it.

    This is a very good soup. It is so easy especially since you don't even have to cook the macaroni first.
