This is a very hearty soup that serves four people and you can freeze the left over soup, Optional-You can substitute beef stew meat instead of hamburger. For the hunters, I'm sure you could substitute wild game for the beef,I also like to add some fresh grape tomatoes when I add the diced tomatoes, enjoy! Sam
