Yummy! Even my picky non soup loving family member loved it.
This is a perennial favourite. I think the velveeta makes the soup tend to develop a skin on top if it cools at all, so I usually alter the recipe slightly by making a sauce of the flour, butter, milk & real cheddar and then stirring it into the soup. I have yet to find someone who doesn't like this.
This was just as delicious as it was easy... I substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream. I will definitely make it again. A little goes a long way, very filling!
pretty good very thick
This was fantastic. Like the others, I did make a few changes: Used a full pound+ of hamburger. Used Beef Broth (nearly 4 cups), not chicken broth. Used the pre-cooked frozen hash brown potatoes to save time. Added probably another cup of velveeta, plus a big handful of shredded chedder. CONS: Took at least an hour to cook with constant attention, it's not a quick meal. Even with the added beef, it barely served six of us (and that was with a homemade loaf of bread as a side for dipping.)
