I originally got the recipe for this super hearty soup from a Home Made Simple newsletter, and have tweaked it over time. I've seen lots of variations, but I didn't find this exact same recipe already, so I'm posting the (essentially) original version for safekeeping. Everyone LOVES it, because it's not super spicy, just flavorful. It's simple to add, subtract, or substitute to suit your needs, it's fine with lower fat or lower sodium items, and it uses mostly pantry items for a quick lunch, or light supper. I've even tripled it to serve a crockpot full at PTA functions...always a hit! My daughter says it makes her tummy purr!
