Zippy Chicken Mushroom Soup Recipe

My sister-in-law telephoned me looking for a good cream of mushroom soup recipe. I gave her this hearty one. It gets its boost from a splash of hot pepper sauce. —Julia Thornely, Layton, Utah

Followed recipe exactly & it is delicious! Made it for my in-laws & my father in-law wanted the recipe! Next time I won't dice the mushrooms, celery & carrots -- I like my soups chunkier. Definitely recommend!

This was delicious. I made a few adjustments... I didn't have cream so I used half and half instead and I only used 1.5 cups of it... Just to reduce calories. I also only had black pepper and only used 1/2 teaspoon. I also added 1 tblsp garlic while sautéing the veggies.. Turned out fab!

After reading all of the glowing reviews, I decided this would be the perfect soup to make for a cold rainy night--WRONG! It was so bad there was only one thing I could do with it and that's throw it down the disposer. Perhaps it was the amount of pepper. I thought the addition of black and white pepper was a bit much so I only added half the amount of white pepper and used just a few dashes of hot pepper sauce. When I tasted the soup, it tasted like milky pepper soup. Tried adding a few ingredients to give it more flavor but to no avail. Save your money and time and find another recipe!
