Super Soups

I got this recipe from a Kraft Food & Family magazine almost seven years ago and have enjoyed it every time. It is easy enough that your child can help fix it too!
It has variations to it so it is very versatile. Serve it with a salad and some fresh bread and you are set for a GREAT meal that everyone will enjoy. And no one (but you) will know that it took no time at all to fix!
Enjoy!
