This is a wonderful Fall recipe. It came from a "Taste of Home" magazine. It is warm, filling and makes quite a bit. One of our favorite soups!

A great soup. I made a few changes- omitted the bacon and carrots and used creamed corn instead of regular corn. The soup was quite thick so I had to add a bit more milk. This was a great way to use up some leftover ham!
