Recipe Notes

You can replace the cream with evaporated milk. Cheese can also be added along with the sour cream. Remove from the heat and stir in until melted. For a thicker soup, combine equal parts cornstarch and water. Pour a little at a time into simmering soup while whisking to reach desired thickness. Meanwhile, for a thinner soup, add additional chicken broth.
