    My husband loved it! I used homemade chicken stock and added a little ham plus a squirt of heavy cream. We had no leftovers and I'll gladly make it again!

    We thought this soup was delicious. I did not have Morton's Nature's Seasoning, so searched on the internet and found a copycat recipe. I used 1 teaspoon which turned out to be just a tiny bit salty for me, but the flavor is so good I didn't let it deter me. Also, since MNS already has salt and pepper in it, I did not use additional S/P. I also did not use the green onions as I don't care for them. Will definitely be making this again.

    This gets 5 stars just for how easy it is. I used the already cooked bacon (and left it in), so I added about 1T of olive oil to saute the vegetables. I had made chicken stock, so I used home-made. I did use additional to make thinner. I would agree that it doesn't make 6 servings - I'm going to get 5 1 cup servings out of it.

    Tastey! I made as directed except I doubled it and I skipped processing it in the food processor. I dont think this makes 6 servings even as I doubled it. All in all it was very good and I will make again. I served it with some corn bread. Made for PAC Fall 2009
