Delicious and EASY!!!, Member chaffy

I made this soup using the ingredients listed but also because I wanted more soup added 4 bouillon cubes and 4 cups of water in addition to the 2 cans of beef broth. Of course, I added additional onions as well. It was delicious with slices of baguette bread with swiss and parmesan cheeses on top. We really enjoyed this one.!!!
