This was good and comforting although a little bland for our tastes. I will make this again but with a bit more spice. Updated to say. This gets better with time. I added just a spoonfull of sour cream and cheddar cheese to the bowls and just a pinch of ceyanne pepper. Wonderful.
Nice and warming soup! This was very easy to prepare and well-received at a soup night I took it to. Thank you for sharing!
