28 ounces canned tomatoes -- 1 28 ounce can, whole, peeled
28 ounces chicken broth -- fresh or canned
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 large green pepper -- chopped
1 large onion -- chopped
2 stalks celery -- chopped
1 pound ground beef -- browned
12 ounces ekrich Smoked Sausage
2 large chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder -- or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (or more) -- (1/2 to 1)
How To Prepare:
Place canned tomatoes into a large soup pot. Break or cut whole tomatoes into small pieces.
Fill tomato can with fresh or canned chicken brothand add to tomatoes.
(A combination of chicken broth and water may be usedbut the soup is better if chicken broth is used.)
Bring soup to a boil and then reduce heat to allow soup to simmer while remaining ingredients are
prepared and added to the soup. Cut green pepper, onion, and celery into bite size pieces.
Saut vegetables in butter until slightly tender. Add vegetables to soup mixture.
Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Tony's seasoning to soup.
(The more Tony's you add the spicier the soup will be. I recommend
adding 1/2 t. at a time and tasting to determine your preference. I like it
SPICY and have added as much as 1 T.) Brown the ground beef, breaking the
ground beef into large bite size pieces. Add Ground Beef to soup. Slice the
smoked sausage and then cut each slice into halves or quarters, depending on
the size of the sausage. Heat sausage in frying pan. Add sausage to soup.
Cut chicken breast into bite size pieces. Brown chicken in frying pan. If
there is not enough oil left from the ground beef and sausage to prevent the
chicken from sticking, add a little butter to the chicken. Add Chicken
to soup. Simmer soup for at least 15 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
Serves 12 cups.
This soup freezes well. á Any leftover meat can be used in this soup. I
sometimes add leftover Honey Baked Ham or leftover taco meat, etc. á
Don't limit yourself to ground beef, sausage, and chicken. Experiment! Try
shrimp, crab, pork, etc. á You can add other low carb. vegetables for variety.
Just remember, adding vegetables will add carbohydrates. á You can remove
some of the soup and place in another soup pot with other vegetables for your
family. Potatoes, corn, and macaroni are excellent added to this soup.
