My sister, Tracy, submitted this recipe as part of the 2018 Christmas collection. I gave it a try and it is an easy and very tasty recipe! Like many things when it comes to cooking, this soup was even better the second day!

Tracy snagged this recipe from the website called The Stay at Home Chef. Rachael’s site has a bunch of good sounding recipes. Follow the above link for more from her.
