Raising children on a dime led me to be frugal in the kitchen. So I came up with this warm and nutritious soup that met with everyone's approval and continues to be a family favorite bringing back fond memories.

This is a perfect soup to warm you up on those cold winter nights. I love the creamy chunkiness of this. There were some in the Test Kitchen that thought this had some heat in it. If you don't like a kick, just cut back on the cayenne. The Test Kitchen
