Good and filling! Cut the recipe in half (just the husband and I) and it made enough for two very large meals. Here are the things I did differently: 1. Used 1/2 lb 90/10 hamburger, browned and set aside. In the same pan melt 3 tbsp salted butter, add 3/4 c each DICED (unpeeled) carrots, onions, and celery. Add 2-3 cloves of garlic 2. Cook until soft and add 1/8 c flour. 3. Cook for a minute or so and slowly add 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk. Then add 1 can (14.5 oz) reduced sodium beef broth. 4. Add 2 teaspoons dried basil, 1 tsp dried parsley, salt and pepper to taste. 5. Used 2 cups frozen Potatoes O'Brien from OreIdea. 6. Grated a 8 oz block of sharp cheddar cheese - the pre-shredded stuff won't melt as well!! and used 1/8 c light sour cream. 7. Topped with chopped fresh basil, a dollop of sour cream, chopped bacon, AND CHOPPED DILL PICKLES!!! The dill pickles 100% made the soup for me. I would never make the soup without them again. 8. Added Tabasco CHIPOTLE Pepper Sauce to taste - FANTASTIC flavor added.
