My mother, Marea Mooney, made this soup for her six children. It is a warm and filling mixture of potatoes, green beans, and frankfurters that's easy to make and perfect for a cold winter day. Adjust ingredients to taste. We all love it; hope you do, too! Serve with salad and warm rolls.

To me this did not sound like a very good meal my husband thought, how weird hot dog soup, said he would not like it, however I was really surprised at how good this soup did turn out and my husband loved it too!! It was very easy to prepare, I would highly recommend this recipe.

While the end result was good, adjustment was needed along the way. 1) The main problem was that this was exceedingly bland; I alleviated this by adding bay leaves and pepper. 2) A 14.5 oz. can of chicken broth would have been too much; an 11 1/2 oz. can worked just fine. 3) Green beans are not the right vegetable for this soup, so I used mixed vegetables. 9 oz. was not enough; I used 16 oz. I'll make this again because it was simple and the kids ate it, but with the above changes.

Wow, what a good idea! It was great. I replaced the beans with a can of peas though and also a can of corn. we all loved it. It was more of a stoup, and very filling in these hard times.
