Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. I thought about the list of ingredients and this soup just seemed a natural fit. This soup brings an old favorite up to date. And, did I mention how easy it is to make? All in one pot or crock pot. This soup can be made rich & creamy or, by changing the milk to fat-free Half & Half, made into a skinny soup without losing any of the flavor. You may also omit the chicken to made a vegetarian Creamy Ranch Potato Soup.
