Warm, comfort food, can be started on the stove then left in a crock pot. Great for winter pot lucks. Serve with bread or Crown Pilot crackers.

Love it! I really liked the flavored cream cheese; I used half of an 8 oz tub of light onion and chive. I blended a portion of the soup (just my preference). This was just the thing for a cold snowy day. I'll make this again.....and double it! Thanx for sharing.
