I used petite diced tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes and cutting them up. I used four cups of beef broth and only one cup of water. I used a can of white corn and french style green beans. I then added a cup of shredded carrots for the veggies. I followed the rest of the recipe. It was good but it seemed like it was missing something. Hubby added more old bay, pepper and salt to his bowl and thought it was better.
