what about cream of chcken


Sunday 30th of August 2020

I don't think I understand your comment. Do you me in addition or to replace the cream of potato soup? I guess you could do either, but the potato soup really adds a lot of flavor and substituting it would change the flavor and texture of the soup.

Hi Kim! Hum. I've had luck finding cream of Potato at both Walmart and my local main chain. But if you can't find it then you can use cream of onion or cream of celery soup. Give those a try.
