I'm giving the base of this recipe 5 stars, but it's really my modifications that make it a 5 (in my opinion). I read the reviews below and took some ideas from others. I try and eat light so I tweaked this to cut some calories. I used only a 1/2 stick of unsalted butter, 3 cups FF milk, 4 cups chicken stock or broth (I've done both), omitted the sour cream completely, and added garlic salt or powder. If it's still too thin I add a little more flour or corn starch. Because I used unsalted butter I did add a little bacon and a little cheese to add salt and thickness to the soup. Bacon, cheese and scallions were used as a topping for whomever wanted extra. I've made it twice now and my husband even has rave reviews- that's saying a lot!!! I too think it's better the second day. If it gets too thick I just add in a little milk when reheating.
