Very good!! Made as written, with the exception of the salt... there's already a lot of sodium in the soup mixes. This is going into my regular rotation!!
I am a big soup fan year-round (which drives my husband crazy here in HOT south Texas) - I recently made this one and LOVED IT. I could not find the beef tomato soup mix and instead replaced all of the water with beef broth and added half a can of tomato soup. I also ended up adding another cup or two of water. I will make this over and over come winter!
Oct 13, 2004 - A very flavorful soup without being over spiced. We all enjoyed it and I will definitely be making it again. The only thing I'll change next time is I'll either add the green beans and corn at the same time as the other veggies or use canned ones. They simmered for almost 2 hours but still weren't quite done. Excellent soup! Thanks for sharing! Update - It has become very hard to find the beef tomato soup mix around here. I now use one pack of beefy onion soup mix and we like it just as well.
