This flavorful ground beef soup is an excellent choice for an everyday fall or winter meal, and it is packed with nutrients. Canned black-eyed peas add protein and make for easy preparation. And it's a hearty, satisfying soup.
We enjoy this soup with freshly baked cornbread. Biscuits would be good with the soup as well. Add a tossed salad for a fabulous family lunch or dinner.
