Very hearty soup. I crumble cooked bacon on top. This makes a meal with the addition of a loaf of crusty french bread.

This is a quick and easy soup that can be made from pantry items on hand. Will make often during the cold months.

Very tasty, filling soup...and so easy to prepare! It did take me quite a bit longer with the preparation, but only because I doubled the recipe. I didn't add in the cayenne because of the children, but instead added it to my own bowl. I served this with french bread as suggested. I'll definitely make this one again.

Thanks to the new chatroom I found out what cheese I could substitute for American cheese! lol This is really delicious, the cayenne gives it a nice kick and is very filling. Served it with crusty rolls. A keeper. Thanks for posting Inez. =)
