This was really good. If you want it thicker you can add a few spoons of instant mashed potatoes-it gives it a yummy help. I also used canned evaporated milk and dehydrated chopped onion and it still came out great! Last, I added a bit of chopped parsley for added color right towards the end of cooking. Read More

Not a bad recipe but just average. Spiced it up with some cajun seasoning and used a whole pack of bacon. It was simple and not hard to make but the family was only so-so on it. Read More

This is a good soup recipe... However I did use chicken broth in place of water and it required more than the 1/2 cup stated. I probably used about 1 and a half cups. It needed a little bit of salt and LOTS of pepper. Overall it was quick and easy and quite tasty. Read More

Good grief I love this recipe! It's super easy and reheats well - I'm a college student and time is scarce but this one is definitely worth the effort! The only change I make is that I add a bit more milk and sometimes cream. Read More

After reading all the great reviews I was really looking forward to having this on a dreary day. It sounded so good. What a disappointment. It was so bland. Like one reviewer said it did taste like watered down creamed corn. I even tried adding a touch of garlic that didn't help so I added a little ceyenne pepper..no help. So I tried letting it simmer thinking the flavors might blend...wrong. Finally I added more bacon. All that did was make me waste bacon. It just didn't improve. I won't make this again that is for sure. Read More

It was easy and pretty good but the broth holding the ingredients together was a bit thin for my tastes. I added 1/4 cup of milk with 3 tablespoons of cornstarch in it to thicken and a pat of butter. I think next time I'll add some celery. Read More
