My mom made this soup for us for Sunday dinner a few weeks back. It was gone so fast that I couldn’t even get a picture of it. This soup was so delicious and creamy. We LOVED it! I was more than happy to make it again for my family!!

Rating: 5 stars Difficulty of Recipe: 3 stars
Things that I changed: Apparently I missed the part of adding the 2 cups water to the soup! It still tasted great to us!!
Things that I would do differently next time: Add the water
