Super-Easy Southwest Soup

Sharon Richardson


The owner of a local Christian bookstore, gave me this recipe several years ago. It's SO good, and quick to make. And it tastes like you've been working on it all day! :)

approx. 8 servings


20 Min


15 Min


1 to 1-1/2 lb
ground beef
1 tsp
minced garlic
1 tsp
3 Tbsp
minced onion (or 1 onion, chopped)
2 can(s)
minestrone soup (regular size)
1 can(s)
ranch style beans
1 can(s)
rotel tomatoes
1 can(s)
beef broth
salt & pepper, to taste
1 to 1-1/2 c
medium-sized pasta shells (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Brown ground beef with minced garlic, cumin and onion. Drain.
Add all other ingredients. (Don't drain any of the canned ingredients). May wish to add 2 or 3 cans full of water.
Heat through, and serve with shredded cheddar cheese and cornbread! SO DELICIOUS! :)
Note: My family likes extra pasta, so I add 1-1/2 cups medium-sized pasta shells to this soup and boil until pasta is tender (about 10 minutes or longer). If you add pasta shells to this soup, you'll need to add extra water.
Great tasting soup, immediately after heating through. But, even more delicious on the second day! :)
