"Wonderful soup, creamy and delicious. I used shredded TexMex cheese instead of Velveeta for a bit of kick and added garlic powder with the spices. It's a keeper."
"This is a very easily assembled soup and it's delicious. I put a little less bacon and little less Velveeta but it was still wonderful!"
"This was really good! Super cheesy though, kinda tasted like au gratin potatoes. My husband loves Velveeta so he gobbled it up. I put in diced ham instead of bacon because it's what I had on hand. Will definitely make it again."
"I added more pepper and used shredded cheese. And I threw all in the crock pot. Super easy and very good. Would make again."
"Awesome soup, thumbs up 5 stars."
