    I'm not a Pace person, so instead I left it out, turned out good. Added 1/2 can of milk to the soup, needed it. My honney put Taco seasoning to his and sour cream (after cooked) Think next time I'll add corn or rice to the inside

    This was very easy to make. Made for my husband who is not vegetarian and he loved it. I did add a little extra soup to make it more creamy. Will be making this again and again.
