“I received this recipe from a good friend, tweaked it just a bit to our liking, and it is amazing! We love it, and it is so easy and quick that it's perfect for a busy weeknight. Serve with a salad and some crusty bread, and it's a whole meal! *UPDATE 1/22/08 I often use less butter when I make this, and also usually omit the sour cream. It is a very rich soup so cutting back on those helps a bit, but it is really good with it too!”
