    This was really good. If you want it thicker you can add a few spoons of instant mashed potatoes-it gives it a yummy help. I also used canned evaporated milk and dehydrated chopped onion and it still came out great! Last, I added a bit of chopped parsley for added color right towards the end of cooking.  -  03 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was definetly easy and it wasn't bad. I won't make it again.I prefer it a little thicker and made with fresh corn.  -  20 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a good soup recipe... However, I did use chicken broth in place of water and it required more than the 1/2 cup stated. I probably used about 1 and a half cups. It needed a little bit of salt and LOTS of pepper. Overall, it was quick and easy and quite tasty.  -  14 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
