Was going to post this exact recipe for safekeeping. I've been making this since 1990. It's wonderful. Absolutely worth the effort. Thanks Gregg for saving me the labor of posting!

My DD, home from college for a break, made this for dinner tonight. I can't speak to the ease of preparation but the taste is wonderful! Comfort food at it's best! She made the soup as written with one exception. We opted to not stir in any sour cream and just serve it on the top of the soup. This may have saved a few grams of fat and calories. Thanks for a great soup!
