This nicely seasoned soup tastes so good. It's convenient, too, since it simmers all day in the slow cooker. —Jean Hutzell of Dubuque, Iowa

"just no bay leaf"

"I use beef broth as an earlier poster suggested, extra garlic, a big handful of frozen corn. I think mushrooms , white beans and fresh spinach leaves would be good additions. This time I added half an envelope of ranch dressing mix. Easy and quick to make,"

"Just a little bland. I might try the beef broth instead if I make again."

"For some reason this recipe tasted very "tomato-y" to me; not sure why since there is only 1 can of diced tomatoes and 1 can of V8. Perhaps I would eliminate the V8 and try another liquid in it's place should I make this again."

"Bland. Lacks seasoning."
