This was absolutely delicious. I served myself a bowl and really enjoyed it. Then I added a 14 oz can of pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling, but pure pumpkin, stirred and simmered an additional 5 minutes. It was sooooo good. The pumpkin added just a hint of sweetness that pushed is over the top. Garnished it with roasted pecan pieces and creme fresh. Everyone finished the whole pot. Served it with crusty french bread toasted with Kerrygold irish butter. Yum!!!!
