“I use this recipe as a substitute for the canned cream of soups in recipes. I almost never keep that stuff on hand, because its full of sodium, and just yucky. The recipe calls for chicken broth. I use chicken broth for the cream of chicken soup substitute. To make a heartier soup, like the cream of mushroom, I use beef broth. Sometimes I like to add in a little shredded chicken, sliced mushrooms, celery, etc. Use your imagination. I've never tried this soup by itself, I only use it in recipes, and its a great substitute!!! The recipe always tastes better than when I use the canned stuff. Enjoy!”
