Quick Bean Soup

Warm up your potluck with this Quick Bean Soup!  It’s hearty and flavorful, with just the right amount of heat, and is perfect for any fall or winter potluck.  It’s quick and easy to make and only 5 ingredients are needed.

This recipe is from an old cookbook of mine called “Just a Matter of Thyme.”  Every recipe that I have ever tried from this book has been fantastic.


1 1/2 lbs. ground beef

1 onion, chopped

3 – 10 oz. cans minestrone soup

2 – 10 oz. cans Rotel tomatoes and chiles

2 – 15 oz. cans Ranch Style Beans

Brown the beef with the onion and drain off the fat.  Combine in a stock pot with the other ingredients and simmer for 1 hour.  Put it in a crockpot on the warm setting and you’re ready for potluck time.  And don’t forget the paper bowls and spoons!
