This is an easy, after work, soup, with really good flavor. I got it from Taste of Home magazine.

I made half the recipe and used low-sodium beef broth/water in place of bouillon. Also used a small cubed potato. Needed to add a little more water to keep it soupy. Very tasty and easy. Thanks for sharing Barbie. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
