I love this recipe, because its a) great and b) can be made from things you most likely already have in the pantry. I add a can of no salt added diced tomatoes (drained) and a small can of sweet corn (drained) to this soup and I think it really puts it over the top. I top the soup with light sour cream and light cheese.
