This soup had a tasty comfort food flavor to it. I made quite a food changes based on what I had on hand. I used ham cubed instead of bacon, rice a roni wild rice, halved the onion, potatoes, cheese and milk, doubled the celery and carrot. I added 1/2 roasted red pepper and seasoning salt. I also cooked the veggies in chicken stock instead of water. DD who is 3 declared this super fabulous!!
