I pretty much love all things Trader Joe's. I can't leave that place without buying way more than I planned! Whenever there is a sample I seem to automatically be hooked. When I walked in a few weeks ago and tried this "Pizza" soup I immediately purchased everything to make it that week.
It's been cold and rainy this week- a perfect soup week! Naturally we reached for this easy and delicious recipe!
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Package Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup (they come in boxes)
1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
Garlic Salt to taste
Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Brown the ground beef in a deep pan. Drain the excess grease. Add the can of tomatoes and stir well. Add the tomato soup and heat slowly so you don't scald the milk (it changes the flavor). Sprinkle a little garlic salt on the top for some added flavor. When the soup is hot serve in bowls and add a handful of sharp cheddar cheese.
This is hearty enough to eat alone- but we love to add some grilled cheese for an adult version of the childhood classic!
