      Thanks for the info. Have you tried making the soup?

        Sorry, I can't say that I have. Please let us know if you try making it.

        Would you share the artichoke soup recipe you've been using with us? At the restaurant I like to order them combined, and it would be great to be able to do this at home.

    2. I have. It's been years but its about as easy as can be.

      They use canned chicken soup( i know), and canned green chilies. There is sour cream and garlic powder, salt and pepper.
      It's been about 20 years since I when I was there, of course I had the soup, but when I asked the waitress, she sort of waved her hand and told me how easy it was. She didn't give portions just the ingredient list. I made a few time and what I did was I used to 2 cans of large chiles, and 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, about 2 cups of milk or cream. Then I added all the seasonings, and put the sour cream (about 1 cup) into the soup last.
      that was it, and it was great. If you use the large can of green chilis you're sure to get a lot of that green chili taste. But regardless, you got Cream of Chicken soup in there so watch the salt. Now if we can get their Bloody Mary recipe.....

      1. NPR did a story this morning on Duarte's
        and published the artichoke soup recipe
