Today was the perfect, blustery and icy Fall day to try this hearty soup and it was great! The kids came in from playing out in the leaves and needed something to warm them up quick, I needed a easy dinner that everyone would enjoy and this really fit the bill! Thanks for sharing a really good soup.
Yum! I substituted 3 pepper/onion frozen mix for the peppers and onion and used the cole slaw mix (I'll be honest, that scared me a bit - but it turned out perfectly) instead of the cabbage/carrots. I also used venison kielbasa. I didn't have any worcestershire sauce, so that got left out too! I did only use one can of beans, but up'd the broth to 6 cups (I had part of another box of broth I was trying to use up!) YUM! Even my husband, a meat and potato type, loved it and said we should definately keep this recipe around! Thanks Mike! On another note, I froze my leftover soup and it warmed up perfectly tasty, crunchy, and satisfying!
I wasn't sure if I'd like this recipe as I'm not a huge fan of cabbage but man was I pleasantly surprised!!! This recipe makes a lot and most of it's happily sitting in my freezer! I'll be so glad to be able to pull this later in the winter for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. Thanks for a super recipe!
