"This recipe is great, but I made a few modifications based on others' comments about the consistency and to give it a little more flavor. My boyfriend is a big fan of condensed soup, but we're trying to improve our eating habits, so I've been preparing a lot of home made soups to freeze. That being said, I wanted to make a larger volume of soup than this recipe produces. I used about 6 1/2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth, 1 cup wild rice, and 3 celery stalks. I used the same amount of fat free condensed milk (12oz), but I only added 2T of flour at the end. Instead of turkey, I substituted chopped chicken breast pieces which I browned quickly in about 2T hot toasted sesame oil. I also added 3 strips chopped 99% lean turkey bacon. I substituted frozen corn for peas. In addition to the pepper and tarragon, I added 1/2 t salt, 1/2 t curry powder, 1 t ground mustard,and 1 t dried parsley. It was super tasty, I got the ingredients ready in my free time the day before, threw them in the pot before I went out in the morning. I love my crock pot! **DO NOT add condensed soup to this recipe, it is so loaded with added sodium which is terrible on your blood pressure!"
