This is delicious! I added a bit more chicken broth, a little Velveeta, and a bit more milk to make it "soupier"! We loved it. I also just had the sour cream on the side for some who aren't too fond of it.(like Mom)...

Hey, I bet Brent would love this. I may have to give it a try. I'm not a soup person, but it sure does look good.
