Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To toast almonds, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
  • tip 2
    For an even more filling soup, stir in diced, cooked chicken with the half-and-half.
  • tip 3
    Like it cheesy? Serve soup topped with shredded cheddar cheese.
