  • 1 1/2-2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, seeded & chopped
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 4 cans vegetable soup


  • Heat a dutch oven over medium heat. Add the ground beef, stirring & breaking up as it cooks. Continue cooking until cooked through completely, no more pink remaining. Strain the fat, and return the meat to the pot.
  • Add the onion and pepper, stirring occasionally, and cooking until they've begun to soften.
  • Stir in the cans of soup. Season the soup with salt & pepper, to taste. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat, and let the soup simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Ladle the soup into bowls, and serve with thick slices of crusty bread.
