A local restaurant serves a similar soup but wouldn't share their recipe with me. So I developed my own, modifying a recipe for potato soup. I was really pleased at how good this "all-American" soup turned out. —Joanie Shawhan, Madison, Wisconsin

"This Soup is "Great Comfort Food" for a Cold night. I increased my Hamburger to 1 lb. Used 1 cup of Heavy Cream in at the end. And extra Velveeta Cheese about 4 oz. more. Delicious."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 4, 2014

"I couldn't wait to try this soup due to the rave reviews except that is from the nutrition police. It is a filling and tasty meal but I couldn't give it more than 3 stars. Because to us it was just average. I will probably make it again and maybe add more ground beef."
