MY REVIEW

1,012 mg sodium, in 1 cup of soup?? Way, way, way too much for any human. I'm wondering why so high...the chicken broth?

Very good! Plan to make again for a St. Pat's potluck luncheon.

MY REVIEW

My soup came out too thin. Maybe I did something wrong. Next time I will use less chicken broth. I also think I will try sauteing some onion with the potatoes, and adding salt and pepper. I will definitely try this again.

Not a big fan of peas myself, I made this for my granddaughter who loves them. I was surprised to find that I thoroughly enjoyed it too!
