This dish was named this way because it was created on homecoming weekend for many of the local colleges. It definitely falls under the category of “comfort food.” We call it a stew because it has a lot of solid ingredients, but it could also be considered a soup, as it is very liquid. Either way, it is very satisfying and tasty, and will be made again.
If you are anything like us, when autumn comes along, we start thinking of soups. This soup is one of our all-time favorite comfort foods for this time of year. We have made it many times, and after several variations, we think we have perfected this classic recipe. It is very easy to make and can be done within about an hour, plus it scales easily and reheats well.
