Spicy Beef (or Turkey) and Vegetable Soup


This is a Fall/Winter staple at our house! It's reposted from my old recipe blog. I highly recommend trying it!

1 lb ground beef (I am using ground turkey this time)
4 stalks celery, sliced
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
1 26 oz jar spaghetti sauce
1 can beef broth, undiluted
2 c water
1 t sugar
1 t salt
1/2 t ground black pepper
16 oz frozen mixed vegetables
1 10 oz can diced tomatoes and green chilies (like Rotel)

Cook ground beef, celery, garlic and onion in a Dutch oven over medium heat until meat is crumbled and no longer pink. Drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce, beef broth, water, sugar, salt and pepper into the beef mixture; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mixed vegetables and diced tomatoes and chilies; return to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for another 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Stir occasionally. Great served with sharp cheddar and garlic bread!
