Great Soup

I make this soup.

It's really great.

I got the recipe from a friend like 20 years ago.

Did I mention it's really great soup?

I've made it 4 or 5 times a year ever since.

I make it every time I want a really great soup.  

I make it for large groups.

I make it for friends.

Occasionally, I make it just for us.

My sister won a soup making cook-off with it.

It's THAT great.

So what else to you call really great soup?


Of course.

Wanna make it?

Get your stuff.


½ stick butter or margarine
3 green onions chopped or ½ regular onion
3 stalks celery
2 carrots grated
1 box broccoli flowerets  - I always get a big bag and add a whole bunch
Tobasco (I have never used this)
8 oz sour cream
Parsley flakes
3 cans cream-of-potato soup
8 oz grated cheddar cheese
4 chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces - salt lightly
2 10oz cans of chicken broth – can use less or more, depending on desired thickness - but this is a good starting point

Brown chicken bits (lightly stir fry, don’t overcook) set aside
Melt butter in soup pot & saute onion, celery, and carrots- add frozen broccoli midway - maybe 10 minutes total
Add broth & simmer 20 minutes
Add soup and cook till warm
Add cheese, parsley, tobasco, then sour cream – simmer 15 minutes.

This can be made with reduced fat ingredients – never use fat free – also you could use less butter or use olive oil.

Canned chicken broth, potato soup, and cheese are typically salty so I usually don't add more salt.

I imagine that you could make all the broth and potato soup from scratch as well. I'm not adverse to that. I just haven't done it. And it would make this very easy, relatively quick dinner, quite a production. But certainly, do as you please.

This soup is great.

I promise.
