I was looking for something easy and quick for lunch and this was a winner!!! I added just a little bit of milk because we liked the soup thick. So warm, smooth and comforting. I am so glad I found this recipe!!! Thanks so much for sharing. :-)

this was easy and tasted great (which happen to be my 2 requirements for a recipe)!

This soup recipe was so easy and tasted very good. The only thing I would do differently next time is either add more dip, or something to make it taste more oniony. I also didn't use nearly an entire jar of bacon bits, and there was plenty.
