    CindiJ's Note:

    Growing up in the Midwest, this soup was a staple in our menu during the long winter months. When our sons were at home they loved the soup but it never seemed to hold them for very long. I added a few more ingredients and now they make this recipe for their families and friends and share the recipe often. I hope you enjoy it!

      This soup is wonderful! I used colby cheese in place of Velveeta, but otherwise no changes were made. It's got a great texture. This is one of those comfort soupa that everyone is sure to love. I'll make this again; thanx!
