Very easy recipe, good flavor - does "need something". I am going to try and add some chicken or veggies as the other reviews suggested but overall very good.

We make this all the time, it's super easy and a great make-ahead meal. We add cooked chicken and really make it hearty. Love it!

Added corn and green bell pepper to make it more chunky. Also added 4-6 oz American cheese. It was delicious but since the original recipe didn't call for those things I couldn't give it an "'excellent."

I didn't add the peppers because we don't like our soups too spicy but it still tasted great.
