    Very easy and nice for a cold night. I added a splash of worcestershire sauce as well

    My family couldn't get enough of this soup. My daughter told me it's her new favourite. It was quick, easy and delicious.

    I found this years ago in the Quick Cooking mag. My kids love it and dinner guests, too. I have been making this for over 10-years!

    Easy to put together and very good. My husband said "I wouldn't call it soup (because it's so thick) but it's good." That is high praise coming from him.
