Expert Tips

  • When blending hot liquids, it is very important that you do not seal the blender, or you could risk it exploding. Remove the center portion of the blender lid, and loosely cover with a kitchen towel instead.
  • Top individual servings of soup with a dollop of sour cream or a drizzled swirl of heavy cream, plus a pinch or two of black pepper or allspice, if desired.
  • Serve soup with slices of Pillsbury™ French bread or fresh-baked crescent rolls for dipping.
  • Making this for a vegetarian crowd? Swap the chicken broth for vegetable broth.
