Hamburger Soup AKA Sean's Stew

This is one of my husband's favorite soups. It is really EASY and good! I cut cheese up and put in mine once it is in the bowl. I love cheese in EVERYTHING! We eat this with crispy cornbread. The funny thing is my husband's family calls this soup, "stew". So when we were first married I told him I was fixing "stew" for dinner. When he got home he was excited to eat "stew". When I dished it up he said "this is not stew." I was really confused by this. The difference in his and my family's stew is a big difference. I will post a recipe for my family's stew later this week. Here is his family's version.

2 pounds ground chuck-browned with 1 onion-chopped
6 cans of Veg-All canned veggies
2 cans of whole kernel corn
2 t garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 cans tomato soup-concentrate
1 quart of water

Once browned add canned veggies, tomato soup, garlic, salt, pepper, and water. Stir. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer. Serve with cornbread.
