  • to make this soup thick, use an immersion blender on about 2 cups of the soup then return to the pot. - 1/4/12

  • Very good, however I followed instructions and mine didn't get thick, so after and hour & half of simmering, I added 3/4 c. of 2% milk and it gave it a creamier consistency. Next time I will either add mashed potato flakes or 2 c. of potatoes and maybe a little less broth. - 1/8/11
