I developed this soup out of two others to create my own low-calorie recipe. It turned out so well that I entered it in my county fair and won a blue ribbon. —Alyce Wyman, Pembina, North Dakota

"We loved this! My husband and I both thought the liquid smoke was what made it. Without it, it might have been bland. Just don't use too much. :)"

"I made this last night for supper and it was really, really good! I left out the onion as I'm highly allergic to them , added more garlic and it turned out great. When my husband eats two bowls of soup, I know it has to be good. Great flavor and have enough left for a couple more meals."
