Tips and Tricks:
- Don’t have beef stock? Just use 2 C. of boiling water and dissolve 2 beef bouillon cubes in the water.
- After the ground meat is browned and the onions are sautéed, you can add everything to a slow cooker and cook this on a low setting for about 6 hours instead of cooking on the stove.
- Tortilla chips, sour cream, grated cheddar cheese, sliced avocado, or sliced jalapeños can all be used when serving this soup. Add what you like.
- This freezes great!
