Very satisfying on a cold winter night. This soup has all the essentials, and it's quite delicious.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 pound ground beef
- 2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
- 2 cups cubed potatoes
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 cup uncooked white rice

In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute the ground beef for 5 minutes, or until browned. Drain the excess fat and add the tomatoes with liquid, potatoes, carrots, onion, salt, rice, black pepper and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1 hour and serve.
