“My niece makes this in a slow cooker by putting in all the ingredients but the cheese. When the veggies are tender, she adds the cubed cheese and 5 minutes later, a nutritious meal is served.” Jean Hall - Rapid City, South Dakota

After reading so many reviews about it being a little bland I decided to add a can of mild Rotel which has lots of flavor but almost no heat. I also added some fresh zucchini and bite size chicken cubs. I boiled my own chicken and use the broth from that instead of the bouillion granules. Since I used a onion when cooking my chicken/broth I only used half a onion in the soup. I think the changes I made added a lot of flavor and I will be making this again. My husband and daughter are not soup eaters but my mom and I loved it.

Quick, easy, filling, loved by the whole family and inexpensive. Made it without ham and corn starch... Only because I didn't have any.
