    This was just OK..I think too tomato-y for me! So glad the okra's in there as I think that's the best part. Not a fan of the frozen mixed vegies. Don't think I'd make again. It wasn't horrible, just not to my liking.

    The blend of chilis and the chunky vegetables is just fantastic. Love this recipe!

    Vegetable broth can be found in the soup aisle with chicken broth or beef broth. I add veg. and beef broth to my soup. I also cube potatoes and add some elbow macaroni. Oh so filling and good. Honey girl.
