Bel's Spicy Potato Soup
1 pound ground beef
4 cup cubed peeled potatoes (1/2-in cubes)
1 small onion, chopped
3 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
4 cups water
2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (or as hot as you like!)
In a Dutch oven or large kettle, brown ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
Add the potatoes, onion and tomato sauce.
Stir in the water, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender and the soup has thickened.
