So yummy!! I changed a couple minor things but mostly followed the recipe and it was fabulous! I used vegetable broth because we are vegetarians and I didn't have celery so I used a little celery salt but other than that I stuck to the recipe. Hubby really loved this, I'll definitely be making it again soon.
Out of this world delicious! This soup has it all. I made this as written but used a bit more mexican cheese. It has a little "kick" but it's not a spicy kick. The gravy mix thickens this nicely. I would think that if you don't have the mix, just dissolve some cornstarch into the milk, because you really can't taste the gravy mix. This is a keeper for sure. Thanx for posting!
