Oh this is so good! I made a couple of changes to it, but not much. I did drain the beans, omitted the sherry, and I used a little chicken stock to loosen it up. After not using the liquid called for, I needed a little something. It really is a quick and delicious soup. I added a little hot sauce to my bowl. DH added some shredded Monterey Jack cheese to his bowl. I will make this again. Made and Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe Tag - Thanks! :)

  6. Stir the milk into the sour cream and mix well. Pour into a squirt bottle or small zip-top bag and snip the corner.
