This is a family favorite. All my guys insist on having meat in soup for it to be filling. This is a crowd pleaser and works great for taking to functions. I guarantee if guys are around there will not be any left over. I made cornbread to accompany it or sometimes make cheese quesadillas which is my personal favorite.
