    Awesome soup I bowled potatos in chicken stock instead of water... used real cheddar cheese shredded about 2 cups and also 4 cups milk and 2 cups non fat cream with 3 tablespoons sour cream... thicker,richer! But still excellent base recipe  -  14 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Everyone I have fed this soup to really love it and it really is easy to make. Kids seem to really love it. I make this at a middle school I work at and the kids really eat it up.  -  20 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
