Recipe by Doing it Right

I first found this recipe on, about 2 years ago and have made it serveral times since. It was submitted by Cathy. It currently has ***** and 288 ratings. I made it this past week for my weekly soup lunch and it was a crowd pleaser.

I too found this recipe years ago on and make it all of the time. It is excellent to say the least. My kids enjoy it too but I cut back on the spice in the original pot and kick it up in the other bowls. Don't skip the cheese! Enjoy!
