My Grandmothers Hamburger Soup

This is my favorite meal, my Grandmothers Hamburger Soup. My Grandmother used to make this all the time for my mother as a child, then my mom would make it for us, and now I've started to make it. It's sort of like a stew and a chilli had a baby. It's great for cold winter dinners. Eat it with some delicious bread, dip it in. I hope someones tries it and loves it as much as me. I've made it for friends before, and they've told me I could sell it in a restaurant! (i don't know if it's that good)
