"Winter comfort in a bowl!Loved this soup - better than a previous recipe I'd tried, too. I didn't add the mushrooms, green pepper, or jalapenos, and did a bit less milk. At the end it seemed to need some herbs so I added a bit of dill and parsley - and then it was perfect!"
"Oh my yummy! This soup is a winner. I did make a few changes. I forgot to buy carrots, so I didn't add that; only added about half the mushrooms (not a huge mushroom fan, and I would chop them really small next time), and used 3 generous cups of sharp cheddar instead of Velveeta (personal preference). The leftovers are just as amazing. I will definitely be making this again, probably with bread bowls next time. Mmmmm!"
"Very good recipe! I made a couple modifications thoughI didn't add any mushrooms,I didn't use any butter since the beef had enough fat,I used a stick blender on the soup before I added the ground beef,I didn't use any flour to thicken the soup as the potatoes thickened it enough.And finally, I added a little pickle juice to the soup.That really added something that was missing."
"Very good! There were no leftovers!"
"Everyone raved about this soup at Deer Camp - men AND women! Very satisfying!"
