Family Hamburger Soup - 6 points

Here is an easy soup recipe from Pillsbury. I love a good beef vegetable soup on a chilly day like the one we had today in Tennessee. This soup has the decency to work equally well by following the directions below or by slow cooking in a crock pot. I do appreciate versatility in a soup.

Family Hamburger Soup- adapted from Pillsbury Annual Recipes 2008
1 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cups potatoes, diced or shredded
1 cup sliced celery
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables
5 cubes chicken bouillon
5 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1. In a large saucepan, cook ground beef and onion over medium high heat 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 18 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
3. Yields 7, 6 point servings
