The overall taste was good but I think next time I will leave out the onions all together, it was very heavy on onion flavor and I only used one

This was very good, except I had to really thin down the soup with more Chicken stock and more half and half. I adjusted the spices to my taste which I like things spicier. It was creamy , and very good. Thanks for a great recipe.
