Yummy Soup!

As promised, the soup recipe:

1lb ground beef [ground turkey will work too. Brown and pour off excess grease]
1 can corn
1 can pinto beans [sometimes I leave this out]
1 can stewed tomatoes [I usually run through the blender]
1 can green beans
1-2 cups frozen Lima beans
1-2 cups frozen peas
1 large chopped onion [saute before adding to mixture. can cook them with the meat if you want]
2 carrots sliced into bite size pieces [I cut them pretty small]
3 cups diced potato
1 small can tomato sauce [we accidentally used tomato SOUP this time but really liked it]
3 beef bouillon cubes [dissolve these in 2 cups of water then add]
1 T Mrs. Dash seasoning
Garlic powder [to taste]
A dash of basil [I use dry for this]

Use all the liquid from the canned veggies. Add or subtract any veggies your family likes/dislikes. Add more water if you want it "soupier". Simmer for about an hour on medium heat. I usually taste after it cooks a while and adjust seasoning.

This makes approx. 8-12 servings depending on the amount of liquid. For the 12 serving calculation its only 2 WW points per serving! I ate this for lunch today...SO yummy and SO filling. Enjoy!!
