This has always been called Special Soup at our house. My kids would request Special Soup on a regular basis. No wonder because it is SPECIAL, SPECIALLY GOOD that is! Not hard to make & you can switch up the ingredients to please your family! ENJOY my SPECIAL SOUP!
2 LBS of Ground Beef 85% Lean, or Skinless Ground Turkey or Chicken!
2 Medium Onions Chopped
6 Medium Potatoes Peeled & Chopped
1/4 Head of Cabbage Shredded as if for slaw
64 OZ. V8 Juice
26 OZ. can of a Cream Soup ( I use Campbells Cream Of Mushroom) use what your family will love best
1LB Bag of Frozen Mixed Vegetables
1LB Bag Frozen Broccoli, Cauliflower, & Carrot Medley
OR use 2lb of whichever frozen veggies you would like!
1 LB. Velveeta or your favorite cheese ( this could be a Pepper Jack Cheese, Mac & Cheese blend cheese or even Cream Cheese)
2 TSP Parsley
In a large pot brown the ground meat with the onion. Drain & put it back into the pot. Now add the potatoes & the V8. Cook until potatoes are fork tender. Now add the Cream Soup & 1 can of water using the soup can to measure. Add the frozen veggies, shredded cabbage, & the parsley, cook until tender! If you need more water add it now! Now stir in the cheese & simmer & stir until the cheese is melted! NOW YOU HAVE SPECIAL SOUP! I do not add any other seasoning so feel free to taste & add what you like! Pepper, Garlic, Chili Powder, anything that your family is partial to!
