I love this recipe and make it all the time! I love to make a double batch ahead of time when its cold and we go camping. It also freezes very well so its easy to send to friends and family when they are feeling a little under the weather! Definitely recommend trying this recipe!

Delicious and so easy! I am not a big cheese fan so I left that off with no loss of flavor. The soup also thickened up even more when reheated as the potatoes continued to break down. I'll definitely make this one again.
