2-3 stalks celery chopped
2 cans beef broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
water if needed
3 carrots peeled & chopped
4 potatoes peeled & chopped
canned green beans
frozen corn
2 bay leaves
salt & pepper to taste
chili powder to taste
garlic powder to taste
a few shakes of worcestershire sauce

brown hamburger with onion & celery. drain & return to pan. add broth, tomatoes & tomato sauce (add water here if needed). add potatoes & carrots, seasonings & worcestershire sauce. bring to boil, then turn down & simmer till vegetables are tender (15-20 minutes). add canned beans & frozen corn and cook till heated through. i like to let mine simmer for around an hour total. *remove bay leaves before serving.

I made this the other night and loved it! Definitely will be added to my soup repertoire. I think I saw it mentioned on Flower Patch Farmgirl blog. Anyway, I'm going to have to go back through your blog to check out your recipes, I'm always looking for more good ones- esp the simple and easy kind like this!
