“This rich, creamy soup is really quick and easy to make and always gets rave reviews,” writes Sarah Perry from Camarillo, California. “I serve it with banana bread or muffins and often double the recipe just to have leftovers!”
In 1932, our junior high school cooking class teacher taught us a simple recipe starting with a can of tomato soup. As I was preparing tomato soup for lunch recently, I remembered those two additional ingredients. I had forgotten what a tasty difference the peanut butter and cheese make.

"My husband, Don, and I loved this savory dish when we first sampled it at a party," notes Nancy Nielsen of Orange, Connecticut. "Of course, I had to have the recipe, which I have downsized to serve just the two of us. This hearty entree featuring tender beef is one of our favorites."

"You'll get a thumbs-up when you serve this veggie-packed soup," says Diane Mrozinski of Essexville, Michigan. You can substitute ground turkey for the beef, if you like, and easily double or triple the recipe to serve more people.
Give yourself a delicious calcium boost with this creamy, cheesy soup from Maria Regakis of Somerville, Massachusetts. "I like to serve with a green salad," Maria notes. "You can also add 2 cups of cubed cooked chicken, if you wish."
“My husband is not a soup-for-dinner kind of guy, but he loves this chunky, stick-to-your-ribs soup,” laughs Nancy Tafoya in Fort Collins, Colorado. “I always serve it with a warm loaf of homemade bread.”
