BBQ Hamburger Soup is a super easy soup that you can throw together with items you probably already have in your pantry! I call it my “clean out the pantry soup!”
I have a pantry problem. While I am more than grateful to be able to stock my pantry at this point in our lives, I’m ashamed to admit that our pantry is packed with random food that we keep in there forever and ever.
At one point in our marriage we didn’t have a lot of money and stocking the pantry wasn’t even an option. Now we can afford to put food in our pantry but I find myself forgetting to use the food that we’ve got stockpiled in there when I’m making up my menu plans for the week.
Instead I find myself making up meal plans that require me to buy every single item from the store and I don’t even touch my stockpile of dry goods in the pantry! So this week I decided to change it up!
A few nights a week I would challenge myself to only make dinner using what we already had on hand! No trips to the store, I just had to go with what we already had in the pantry, freezer and fridge.
Well, this BBQ Hamburger Soup came from one of those nights! Oh my and I’m so glad that it did! I’m adding this BBQ Hamburger Soup to our meal plan rotation and it’s the perfect recipe to use up the canned vegetables and pasta that I’ve been hoarding in the pantry!
Ps. Y’all, I did use one of my favorite spice blends from the Tea and Spice Exchange but if you can’t get your hands on that, you can use your favorite burger spice blend or seasoning instead.
