Very good recipe, Member rossatl97

It has been unseasonably cold here in GA so I tried this recipe. I threw in a can of cream of celery soup and a frozen package of red yellow and green peppers with chopped onoins to save a little time. I also added cayenne pepper to make it a little more spicy. It was delicious, it will last us all weekend in front of the fireplace, An inexpensive and tasty winter treat. Great with oyster crackers too.
