This recipe came from another list and I made it the other day.  It needs a 
little more flavor, but DH, who usually likes his food very spicy, 
suggested that I not add anything to the pot but the eater could add more 
herbs if desired.  He then proceeded to add fatfree saltines to his bowl, 
and I added some garlic/herb powder.  The liquid smoke flavor leaves a 
pleasant taste that you don't want to overwhelm.
