1.  In a large dutch oven, cook ground chuck and onion over med-high heat until beef is browned and crumbly.  Drain well.

2.  Add other ingredients.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat; reduce heat; simmer for 25 minutes.  Add cheese, stirring until melted.  Garnish with sour cream and shredded cheese.

Our thoughts on the soup tonight:  Bryan: “Delish!”   His rating 1:12 ( once a month)  On a side note….my husband rates meals.  He is NOT one to do Spaghetti once a week.  If he feels like we eat something too much he will never want it again.  He developed the rating system so I would know how often he would enjoy eating it.  Nutty, right?  I think so.  All the kids had seconds.  Overall it was pretty good.  Especially since it is a dump soup.

Think this is good?  You should try this Chicken Chili.

    Hello Brandy,
    I do not expect you to reply since you have 9 kids to love…but I thought I would send it anyway. I stumbled onto your blog through Pinterest. My husband and I have five boys, and I have always felt since the beginning of our marriage that we are called to adopt, to bring other children into the fold of our love. There are so many agencies out there, I’m not sure where to start. Your blog is so encouraging! Thank you for being such a great witness to marriage and to large family life – it’s beautiful! – Susan

    Yum. This looks nice and easy. And I can adapt it to be dairy-free for my son by just allowing us dairy-eaters to put our own cheese on our own servings.
