Hamburger Tomato Macaroni Soup


This is an easy recipe that my mom made when I was growing up. It is one that I just throw together at the last second when dinner sneaks up on me.


It has three simple ingredients...

3 Cups of Macaroni

One Large Can of Tomato Soup

1 lb. of Hamburger

This is all you need to do...


Brown the Hamburger and drain off the grease. Boil the Macaroni and drain it.


Mix the Hamburger and the Macaroni together in the pan you boiled the Macaroni. Now pour in the tomato juice until you get the soup to your desired thickness, and bring it to a boil.

The Macaroni will sock up some of the tomato juice so you may need to add more to it later.


We always top the soup with a little shredded cheese. Our kids love this fast and easy soup. Let me know in the comments below how you like it. It really cant get much easier than this.

Ham Potato Chowder Remix

This is a recipe that I made and shared last year, but it is so good I had to share it again. We had a Christmas Party at our house on Thursday and we had some leftover ham. I thought it was a good idea to make some ham chowder. This is an easy recipe that will warm you up and tastes great.

This is the rundown of what you need.

4 large potatoes

2 TB butter

1/4 cup sliced green onion

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

2 cups of water

1 can of whole kernel corn

1/8 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp paprika

3 TB flour

2 cups milk

1 tsp salt

2 cups diced ham

Peel and dice potatoes. In large saucepan melt butter, add onions and green pepper. Cook until tender. Add potatoes, water and seasonings. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender.

Make paste of flour 1/2 cup water. Add to potato mixture.


Add milk and cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in undrained corn and diced ham. Heat through.


My kids love this soup. They both had a second helping. I know you will love it. Let me know how you like it in the comments below.

Easy Crockpot Potato Soup

This will be my second Crockpot recipe in a row. I love them because they are so easy and quick. One of my good friends shared this recipe with me a while ago. She has it posted on her blog as well. This is my second time making it. The kids really liked it. It is super easy and takes like less than 5 min to prepare.

1 30 oz. bag of frozen, Shredded Hash Browns

3 14oz. cans of Chicken Broth

1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup

1/2 cup Chopped Onion

1/4 tsp. Ground Pepper

1 pkg. Cream Cheese


In a crockpot, combine everything EXCEPT for the cream cheese. Cook for 6-8 hours on low heat.



About 1 hour before serving, add cream cheese and keep heated until thoroughly melted.



Top with cheese and bacon bits.

My little girl Peyton had three bowls of this tonight, and Kai had two. I think you can qualify that as a homerun with my family. This is really good. Brandon suggested that cubed ham and a can of whole corn would be a really good addition. I may try that next time. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
