"My family loves this version. It's light and satisfying. I add a small dash of red pepper flakes for a small kick."

"This soup is really good. I have made it many times and it never fails to satisfy. I'm with the previous reviewer-put in extra bacon."

"Wow this is good stuff. I like the addition of the green peppers. I just added all my cooked bacon to the finished pot and stirred it in."
