    I thought the chicken didn't really go with the rest of the soup. This would probably be better with bacon. Made for Zaar Stars Tag

    a couple of adjustments were made for this delicious soup, I added in 2 tablespoons fresh garlic and 2 teaspoons crushed chili flakes in with the onion, thanks for sharing Teresa my DH enjoyed this very much!

    This is just wonderful. So rich and filling. I love potato skins so I knew I was going to love this. I made as directed and didn't think it needed any of the flour. It was nice and thick. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful soup.

    Very good soup Teresa :) . The only adjustment I made was I only had 1 onion, though it was a large one.. to keep the onion flavor I added a 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder to this, with the onion. Flavors were nice. Great soup on a cold day .

    This was really good. I did peel my potatoes, as I have learned that I just don't like the peel left on it. Also, I did not notice the recipe contained chicken - so did not add anything. I was able to reduce a bit of the butter by sprinkling the flour right onto the onion and stirring until it was fully incorporated, then adding the broth. The sour cream really added a lot to the flavor. I need to remember to add a bay leaf next time, I think that also adds a nice dimension to this type of soup.


<p>? Hi! My name is Teresa.? My husband and I like to take RV trips but it seems lately we just us it for vintage motorcross races. I enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, have done some rock climbing but age is creeping up on my poor old bones. Anything to do with the outdoors I enjoy, so why do I live in rainy Washington state?

We have a granddaughter who lives close by...she just turned 23 this year. She's a sweetheart.?
