This soup was a total hit at my house last night.  My husband isn’t usually a huge fan of soups, but he had three bowls.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture.  So, I found the one that looks most like it on Flickr.  Next time I make it, I will get a picture of the actual soup and change it out.

This was super easy and quick.  We did top ours with bacon and green onions, but the soup itself can be made with 100% shelf stable ingredients.
