I omitted the heat due to preference. Still enjoyed by hubby. Would add cubed ham next time.

One of our favorites. Quick go to recipe with a little kick. I've added left over cooked chicken to make it a full meal.

One of my all-time favorites and I've made it countless times since it was published in Quick Cooking in 2000!

Delicious. I made several modifications: I left out the flour and instead mashed up the potatoes after boiling to thicken the soup slightly. I also added 1 lb chopped chicken breast that I had sauteed in a pan with olive oil to make it a bit heartier. YUM!
