This is not gourmet fare, but it is a filling main dish soup that can be made quickly using 3 cans of vegetables/soup. Posting for a quick and easy recipe, not a savor and gourmet recipe. This is great to feed the masses between getting home from work and rushing out to a soccer game! If reviewing this recipe, please consider that this was posted as a convenience meal, not a gourmet meal!!! Saying all that, with some added sour cream and grated cheese on top, it is really quite tastey! Cayene pepper or crushed red pepper flakes can be used to add spice...left out because I considered this a quick "out the door" family meal.
