Hearty Beef Veggie Soup

Here's a slow-cooked meal-in-one just perfect for chilly winter nights. It's nice to come home to a hearty soup that's ready to eat. It goes well with a fruit salad and bread. —Colleen Jubl, Dayton, Ohio

    Thought this soup was great. I used ground chicken and added a can of kidney beans. Also added salt individually. Very flavorful.

    This was very good. I did season a little more than it called for but the family loved it. It was also supper easy. A great pair with grilled cheese sandwiches.

    I have not tried this yet, but in reply to what coleslaw mix is--look for it near your pre-bagged salads. It is cabbage that is already chopped and just needs the dressing added for slaw. It also comes in a broccoli mix.

    This sounds delicious and I would love to try it. I have a question first; What is coleslaw mix? Thank you

    Made it for the whole family last night. We all liked the tangy taste.
