    I made this soup last night with the green beans and some carrots added, and my family loved it. Thank you so much for posting!

    I make this often. My husband is allergic to onions so I cook the hamburger by itself with only salt and pepper. I use only corn in the soup it is so good I am making it again today. Thank You!!!

    Oh my gosh this is the best soup! I substituted 1 can of tomato paste for one of the cans of tomato sauce and it added just the perfect touch! After cooking the ground beef, I threw everything else in the crock pot and WOW!
