Melanie's notes for this recipe:
Great soup and freezes well. It is very filling. A friend gave me this recipe. Her husband is a picky eater and loves it.

I used 1 lb ground beef and 1/2 of a small onion. For the kidney beans, I used the dark red beans. I simmered the soup for 45 minutes and the flavors blended well and the soup was bubbling.

What a lovely soup for a cold day! The mixture of beans is different and really nice. Melanie said that it freezes well, but I can't weigh-in on that... We didn't have a drop left!


Brown meat and onion together. Drain.
Add meat and onion to all other ingredients and add one cup of water.
Simmer, covered, for at least 45 minutes.
Top with cheese, sour cream and fritos.

This looks great! I bet it'd be good with tortilla chips crumbled on top.

this soup is very, very good. Can't stop at one bowl. I just had to make it even though it is 105 degrees in Texas!

Melanie- I want to try this, but what is the Rotel 10oz in your ingredients...that's a brand name, usually tomatoes, but you already have those listed above.

i make this soup all the time Ed. rotel is a brand name. you can usually find it in the canned tomatoes section, if not try the ethnic,mexican section. there are differenvarites of Rotel, orignal, mild, hot...however much heat you want in the soup.
