Sriracha is Super in Soup

Yesterday, it was raining outside and I felt like making something that would warm me up. I grabbed a bunch of items from my fridge and decided to make soup. Here is the "recipe":

1 pound extra lean ground beef
1/2 a large sweet onion
Garlic powder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Italian seasoning

Finely chop the onion, toss with the beef in a stock pot, coat well with the seasonings and when it is browned, add:

2 cans tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste (opt. I like my soup flavorful)
1/2 a white cabbage, chopped into chunks
2 cups sliced carrots
a handful of frozen corn
a handful of frozen peas
add water until it looks good to you
as much Sriracha Hot chili sauce as you can handle, or your favorite spice

Sriracha HOT chili sauce is one of my favorite condiments. It goes great in soups, chili, breakfast burritos, with teriyaki, Thai food, Indian food and Vietnamese (specifically Pho soup and Lemongrass chicken.) My favorite uses for it are teriyaki and the soup listed above.


  1. I thought this was you (you orange hat-not-maker).

    Glad I found you! (thanks for the hint)

  2. Ok, this looks great. Soup is one of my favorite things... when I make my favorite soup this autumn, I'll have to post the recipe.


Your comments make my day, thank you!
