Expert Tips

  • To Make Ahead and Freeze: Prepare recipe as directed. Cool uncovered in refrigerator 30 minutes. Pour soup into 2-gallon resealable freezer plastic bag, leaving 1/2 to 1 inch at top for expansion; seal. Lay bag flat in freezer. Freeze up to 3 months. To reheat, thaw soup overnight in refrigerator. Pour soup into 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven. Cook over medium heat 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated.
  • Russet potatoes are used in this recipe because of their starchiness which is released as the potatoes cook in the broth, becoming part of the foundation of a rich, thick soup.
  • To change up your soup, swap in ground turkey for the ground beef.
  • Miss the bun? Bake up some Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent rolls or biscuits as a side bread to round out your meal.
  • Want to save a batch for later? You can fill freezer containers with this soup, leaving 1/2 to 1 inch at top of the container for expansion. Freezer food storage bags will work too and is good for for easy freezer organization.
  • Want to take leftover soup to lunch? Fill canning jars with soup and keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Take off the lid and reheat the soup in the microwave for a tasty lunch with little prep.
