Creamy Ranch Broccoli Soup is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved it I'm a big fan of warm, comforting creamy broccoli soup and I loved the layer of flavor HV Ranch added to this easy soup. I used 2 percent milk to make it a little creamier. My family found it a bit heavy, but I loved it. I suppose you could add broth or milk to thin it, if you wanted. I skipped the bread bowl idea to save calories.
