This recipe was originally posted by me on the old Copykat recipe site- see http://www.copykatchat.com/soups/23191.htm and also at Recipe Goldmine back in 2001. If arted598 is going to post someone else's recipe on a food site, it should be common courtesy for her to acknowledge the source and not attempt to take credit for something that she did not create herself. BTW, the soup tastes great- and I should know!
