MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 29, 2011

"I thought this soup was a little too thick when I got the final product so I added another can of broth to thin it out a bit. If I were to make this again I would use real bacon chopped into very small pieces and cooked till crisp then I would transfer them to a plate and sautee my onion in the bacon drippings rather than butter then add the broth 3 cans instead of 2 then fisnish the rest of it the way it is written"

"This soup was delicious and so easy to make, even my husband who claims to not like avocados highly complemented this soup, it was so creamy without any added cream! Will definitely make it again!"
