MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2014

"This soup wasn't our favorite. I think we would have enjoyed it with a bit more flavor instead of just spice from the peppers. Perhaps I'll try it again with bacon, like another reviewer suggested!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 31, 2011

"I was very surprised how creamy the pumpkin makes this soup. It reminded me of a chili so..... I rinsed a can of kidney beans and added it, along with a "handful" of bacon bits...Oh my, I highly recommand this soup."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 2, 2010

"I made this soup for dinner Halloween night. It was a huge hit. In fact I'm making it again tonight for a family get together. I omitted the cayenne pepper and the jalapeno pepper only for the fact that I didn't want it too spicy for my grandchildren. Even with those left out, it turned out excellent!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 29, 2009

"I thought it could have used a little less onion."
