  • I have made this recipe for years!! Love it!! Online it shows how to take out a couple cups of this soup, adding a couple of different things, and turning it into a different meal like 7 ways. Its pretty cool! One basic soup that can be served that many ways is always a good thing! TY for posting it - 10/13/14
