My family requests this recipe often. I modify it quite a bit. I fry a pound of cubed bacon and a pound of spicy bulk sausage to make the dish heartier and spicier. I use diced potatoes instead of sliced and skip the step of blending. I also use black pepper to give it an extra kick because my family likes spicy dishes. This soup never lasts long in my house.

Lacks flavor...needs to be thickened. Not the best
