soup’s on

I’ve been making this soup for awhile and I adore it!  Number one…it couldn’t be any easier and number two….it has the best taste without the addition of any spices. You can add salt and pepper to taste, but it is not necessary unless you are passionate about those two things.  My friend, LeeAnn, brought this soup to a carry-in at my house approximately 5 years ago.  It was one of those memorable moments where you just had to have the recipe as soon as you took the first bite.  LeeAnn recently told me that this was a Weight Watcher’s recipe.  Well are you ready?  It won’t take long to write this one down or make it.  Savor every bite!

2-2-2-2 Soup
2 pounds browned ground chuck
2 cans rotel
2 cans southern ranch beans
2 cans minestrone soup, plus one can water.
Combine all ingredients and warm. 

Great with tortilla chips or fritos. 

Cornbread compliments this soup. 
Southern ranch beans can be hard to find in stores… the well-known WM chain always has them.

  1. Jackie, where do you buy Southern Ranch beans at in Wal-Mart? What are they by? I am definitely going to be trying this one out! 🙂

  2. Farm Chick says:

    They are by the chili beans. They are always hiding…so don't overlook them. You'll love this soup… I almost guarantee it! Let me know what you think.

  3. Jackie: I had my family at my house this weekend (25 strong) and made this soup along with broccoli, noodle, cheese soup. It was gone before I could even try it. Everyone who ate it loved it! It was served over taco chips and sprinkled with cheese. Someone suggested that a dollop of sour cream would have been good on top. Thanks for your great recipes!
