Soup… I think

Filed under: Daily Crazies,random crazies — Sol @ 6:09 pm

1lb ground lamb

2 large-ish white onions

2 large cans of stewed/diced tomatos

1 pack of spicy sausage

2 yellow or red bell peppers

2-3 squash

2-3 zucchini

8 med-size potatoes

1 pack of mushrooms

3 quarts of stock (your choice, either cheat and use bullion, or actually go through the trouble of making stock)

Olive oil

2 jalopenos

cracked black pepper, other spices (invent your own to your taste), and…

1lb of peppered bacon.


Fry up your 1lb of small-cut bacon in the bottom of your main stockpot. DO NOT let it burn, or you will be exiled to North Pole until you find Santa.

Scoop out bacon and set it aside on paper towel. Fry 1 large chopped onion in bottom of stock pot until onion becomes close to translucent. Add lamb + spices. Stir to avoid burn, see that all the pink is gone. Add zucchini/squash. Cook until Z/S softened. Add tomatoes and mushroom. Stir and simmer until mushrooms are softer/edible.

In separate pot, cook cubed potatoes in stock, add some cracked black pepper before they are done. Dump potatoes+stock into main pot. Stir chopped garlic roasted in 1/2stick butter.

Serve with a spoon of sour cream and a big pinch of chopped chives. Bacon is very strongly encouraged. In fact, let me put it like this “If you do not add bacon to this, secret police will come to your door, turn off your internets and flood your dwelling with raw sewage.”

  1. This soup is awesome! I wasn’t sure while you were making it, but its good! And the sour cream really adds a richness to it. Great for winter time hibernation! (Look at all those exclamation marks — I MUST be serious)
