If you are pressed for time to get a meal ready, give this one a try. You can have a warm, healthy bowl of soup ready for the family in minutes. It will feed more then 2 that the recipe says, I think you could get 4-6 servings out of this recipe. I used smoked paprika and that fact could have knocked this recipe out of the 5 star rating. The next time I make this I will use regular paprika. I will be reporting back later this fall. Made for New Kids On The Block tag game 2010
