This soup is perfect for a quick lunch or dinner dish by itself or with some cornbread, shredded cheese and sour cream or just add noodles to it!
It is VERY versatile, you could add spices to it, thicken it like a chili, add any other ingredients you'd like with it, for example veggies or noodles,etc...
