"This soup was great! I omitted the salt and cooked the vegetables in seasoned chicken broth. I also increased the amount of broth by maybe 1/2 cup and increased the vegetables because I like my soups chock full of goodies. I also used sharp cheddar for the cheese, and was pleased to find that the soup had a smooth texture, not a grainy one."

"Great fall recipe. Definately a keeper. The only thing I changed was using Velveeta."

"I also enjoyed this recipe. I made in a crock pot, and used an immersion blender to disguise the veggies for my veggie haters. They LOVED it!"
