Ketchup Stew

This was the biggest fail.  The soup was overpoweringly sweet.  It tasted like super sweet ketchup.  I cut the recipe in half and still had so much I could not afford to waste it.  It was inedible, so I put the whole batch in a colander, drained off the ketchupy sweet ickiness, and added fresh broth and diced tomatoes to try to salvage the solid ingredients.
