This really hits the spot. Great flavor and texture. I reserved about 1 cup of the soup and left that unpureed. I garnished with shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Yummy! Thanx for posting.

Right out of the BH&G cookbook, but still a great recipe. I've been making this for years and always add cheese when the soup is reheating.
