Combine all ingredients except crackers in saucepan and bring to a boil.

When ready to serve, zap your crackers in the microwave just long enough to warm them.
Poof! It's on the table!
This soup can be the base of many changes just by adding the leftovers in your fridge. Go to it with cheese cubes, or leftover rice -- perhaps cube that cold potato sitting on the shelf. Mainly, do your own thing!
