Reviews forCreamy Chunky Potato Soup
"Used 2 cups of cheddar in place of the swiss and skipped the celery and carrots. It turned out great! Very hearty and simple to make. Everyone enjoyed it!"
"I made this for a family dinner and everyone liked it."
"A friend of mine made this and it is awesome.....I am looking forward to making it tomorrow.......Its awesome."
"I have made this soup many, many times. All of my family love it -- children, grandchildren and in-laws. It reminds me of my childhood."
"This is really good. I need to make my dishes gluten-free now, so I used about 2 tbsp of cornstarch instead of the flour. I mix it in with the cold milk and butter and bring to a boil until it thickens. The Swiss cheese thickens the soup, too. Good topped with more Swiss or cheddar cheese. My kids like to eat this with Goldfish crackers. :) I usually add a potato or two depending on the size."
"Wonderful comfort food! One of my family's favorite soups."
"This sounds wonderful. It is in my recipe box."
