Any idea on the size can of the evaporated milk? We have teeny cans (about 4 oz) up to larger cans (around 16 oz). This sounds yummy!

I used about 1 cup of the fat free evap. skim milk. This recipe turned out great, gave it to a friend and she added bok-choy. She said it made it like a won-ton soup. I might try it with spinach next time!
