  • Add cream cheese to soup (Hint: pour some of the hot soup into a mixing bowl with cream cheese; whisk to blend, and then pour this back into the soup pot).
  • Add chopped bacon and milk (if you like a richer soup, use Half-n-Half instead of milk).
  • Option - add a pkg. of frozen broccoli, cooked, drained and chopped, or a package of frozen corn.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with additional toppings (cheese, chopped green onions, bacon).
