    My family really enjoyed this soup. We used ground Buffalo which worked well for the kiddos. We're thinking of trying other meats like shredded roast or ground turkey to add some variety.

    We loved this soup. I Substituted the buffalo for beef. Put it in the crock pot while we were at a football game. Also made TOH Cracked Pepper Bread to go with. Will be making this again!!
