Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



This soup is so wonderful; every time I make it it's gone instantly and my family is asking for more. I write a newsletter for my business and put this soup recipe in it a few years ago; I still have customers commenting on how good it is years later!!

Yummy Fun Time

This was a great recipe...although I did change it up a bit. I used a nacho cheese sauce made with aged cheddar and I also added hominy. My husband said it was definitely a keeper!
