“I got the base of this recipe from my mom. I use Organic Vegetable Broth instead of Chicken broth just because I love the combination of flavors and natural spiciness. I also added the extra veggies which makes it a bit heartier. I also added the cheddar which thickens it and lets face it, just makes it a yummy comfort food.”
