    threeovens's Note:

    This is quick and easy to make from ingredients found in most grocery stores. Updated to taste better by adding chicken broth. If you use chicken bouillon cubes, omit salt.

      It is cold here in Florida tonight, and I decided to make some soup! I love potatoes, I love onions, I love pepperoni, I love sazon, I love cabbage, and I love spinach! I was truly expecting to love this, but there is just something not quite right with the soup. I would definitely add some salt (if using sazon and not seasoning salt), and I would chop up the pepperoni before adding it back to the soup in step 4. I did halve the recipe, so maybe that had something to do with it. We enjoyed having this tonight, but it is not something I would make again. I made this for Newest Tag Game!
