    I used some of the water to whir up some beans in my blender to thicken this soup. I also used beef broth for a richer flavor. Soooo good.

  • Everything just came together perfectly.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. It was delicious and easy. I used 2 cups of beef broth instead of the water, and added a teaspoon of garlic powder. Excellent!!

    It takes along time to cook but it's worth it! You can use any quality meat. It's almost the consistency of chili. My family loved it.
