This is another oldie but goody. Don’t let the long list of ingredients fool you, all you need is a can opener! It is easy and delicious, a wonderful simple meal for a cold night. The leftovers are wonderful too!

We love this soul warming soup, and the ease with which it can be made. There is plenty of room for variations. Mexican style canned tomatoes, use all chicken broth instead of water, leave out the bay leaf it you don’t have any, etc.
