Pantry Hamburger Veggie Soup

I just tossed all of this in a pot... It's very flexible, just use whatever you have on hand.

1 lb. LEAN ground beef
2 tbsp. The Lady & Sons Salt Mix (Paula Deen Collection), plus more to taste
1 large onion
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can green beans, undrained
1 can corn, undrained
1 can sliced carrots, undrained
1 can diced potatoes, undrained

Brown beef in a stockpot over med-high heat. Meanwhile, peel and dice onion. When finished, sprinkle Salt Mix over beef, stir, and add in onion. When beef is cooked through stir in tomatoes, green beans, and corn. Bring to a boil. Stir in carrots and potatoes then reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 3 hours. Adjust seasoning as needed before serving.



2 avocados
1 tomato
1 small onion
1 garlic clove
1 jalapeno
1 tbsp. lemon or lime juice
2 tsp. dried cilantro
1/4 tsp. cumin

Slice avocados in half, remove pit, score with a knife, and scoop out. Pour lemon juice over avocado in a bowl, and stir to coat. Seed and dice tomato, dice onion, and mince garlic; add to avocado. While wearing rubber kitchen gloves, remove stem and seeds from jalapeno. Mince; add to avocado. Add cilanto and cumin, and stir well. Using a potato masher, mash avocado and combine all ingredients. Refrigerate.
