hi- we tried this recipe, it was pretty good. I used a smaller bit of cream cheese - roughly one third of the eight ounces, cause I'm skimpy when it comes to things like cream cheese. Actually i'd rather use the cheese on crackers with salt. So, to compensate, if you want creamy, add two TBS of cornstarch mixed in 1/4 cup of water. Add hot soup to the bowl of cornstarch water and stir well. Then add to the hot soup. This makes the texture of the soup much smoother and refined. It doesn't end up looking like cement sludge, if you catch my drift. It actually has a sheen like restaurant soup. And old family tradition- we add a tbs of ketchup to serve, but not mix in. All in all, a decent soup!
