One of those really 'warming' meals. A bowl of this, either alone or on top of buttered noodles is comfort food to the max.

We love good soup and this is one of the best we have had for a while. Fairly easy to make, lots of taste and nice and thick. I served it with your #71414 buttermilk biscuits. Great meal and we will certainly make it again, thanks for sharing. I froze the leftovers to take to work for lunches. Great payback!
