STOVE TOP INSTRUCTIONS

Add the chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, mixed veggies and potatoes to the pan and stir to combine.
Bring the heat to high and let it come to a boil before reducing the heat to medium and letting it simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes become soft.
Add more salt to taste then serve with freshly minced parsley for garnish if desired.
SLOW COOKER INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE ON SEASONINGS: I use onion, garlic, salt, and pepper only to season this recipe to really let the beef and veggie flavors shine through. You can add in any additional seasonings you want. Basil, oregano, smoked paprika, seasoned salt, or even Italian seasoning are good. If you like a kick, add some red pepper flakes!NOTE ON STORING: This soup freezes really well! Make sure you let it cool all the way, then you can store in airtight freezer save containers or bags for up to 3 months. Just thaw overnight and reheat on the stove gently for a few minutes when ready to serve.
