My kids grew up on this soup and still ask for it. I made it for a recent potluck and was deluged with requests for the recipe. I almost hated to give it out because it's so simple and uses canned ingredients almost exclusively! I make it in a slow cooker these days, but always made it in a Dutch oven on the stove top when my boys were younger.
