  2. Bring chicken broth to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring and mashing potatoes often using a potato masher, until soup is cooked through and smooth, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir evaporated milk into soup.

This had an interesting taste I kept going back for (I couldn't decide if I loved, or hated, the basil), but the consistency is a bit gluey and it's not visually appealing. You may have a hard time convincing picky eaters to give this one a try. It was super simple to throw together, though I do NOT recommend my tweaks (which I'll share to save others: I increased the salt to TWO tsps....way too much and I subbed 1/2 tsp white pepper and 1/4ish+ tsp crushed red for the black because I hate black pepper...a bit too much heat)...fear not, my review is NOT based on my tweaks. It's definitely worth giving a try for a quick weeknight dinner on a chilly fall day. THANKS for the recipe!
