This was my favorite soup my grandma ever made for me. My cousins and I would crave this and beg our grandma to make it for us! Now that I am on my own and starting to cook, I tried this and it is not only easy but tastes just like grandmas soup!

This was so delish!! It is easy to make and taste like you spent hours to do so. I used low fat evap milk instead and cut the butter to 2 T. Mmmmm good.

Very good. I used FF evaporated milk. Also, this recipe served 4 in my family with leftovers.

I had a can of evaporated milk thats due date was looming so did a zaar recipe search by ingredient and come up with this recipe. Good choice! I did add a large onion and would recommend that others use it too... and the only thing I changed was that I had some homemade chicken stock in the fridge and I subbed that for the water... yum! a flavourful soup that was creamy and very filling: the sum of which tasted greater than the simple componant parts that made it up. A definiate keeper and even DH "not really a soup fan" gave it the thumbs up. please see my rating system, 4 stars for a great, simple, economical, very tasty soup that is a meal in a plate. Thanks!
