The Pantry Soup

We have all walked in the door from work, needed to cook something for dinner, didn't have much in the fridge or pantry, and there is no way you are going to the grocery store.  This is how the Pantry Soup came to life.  You just take what you have on hand.

The Pantry Soup
1 lb of hamburger meat or ground turkey
Fresh okra sliced
1 can of french style green beans
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of diced green chillies
1 can of ranch style beans
Beef broth
1-2 tbsp depending on how hot you like it of Tony Chachere's Seasoning
4-5 dashes of Cholula hot sauce
1 tbsp of onion powder
1 tbsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of pepper

Saute okra with a bit of Pam until tender. Add to pot with all cans of items.  Then brown hamburger meat with Tony Chachere's seasoning to taste.  Add to the pot. Add in beef broth to cover the contents and more if you would like. Add in onion, garlic powder, Cholula hot sauce and salt and pepper. Let simmer together for at least 30 minutes.

Just a little side note about Tony Chachere's, I LOVE this stuff.  It is so good and if you are not sure what to seasoning to put in something, you always put this and people will ask you what the flavor is.  Great $3 investment.

Meal Cost: $12
