MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 8, 2013

"Wow! Mom, you made this soup?" Used 32 oz broth, 1 can of cheddar cheese soup instead of Velveeta, and didn't add the milk because it was thin enough for my taste.

This is really good. I am not one to use a crock pot so I did this all on the stove top. very good and simple with a lot of flavor. Took about 2 hours.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 8, 2012

I didn't have ground beef so I substituted ground turkey, and I am gluten free so I substituted gluten free flour. It was wonderful, just a little peppery for me.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2011

Loved it. Very easy to make and almost all things were on hand. My husband, who doesn't like soup, even liked this. I didn't have basil so I used some Italian seasoning, had to use beef broth and used 93/7 beef. It was great! Will make again!
