Since we are heading into the time of year when everyone is getting sick, I decided to share the soup I make when I start feeling under the weather. I got this recipe from my aunt and am not sure where she found it, but it is easy to make, tastes great and excellent when you are sick. Making a vegetarian variation of this soup is really easy. The cream of chicken soup can be substituted with cream of mushroom soup; you can replace the chicken broth with vegetable stock, and switch the chicken meat with red beans.
