It doesn't take long for Tammy Condit, League City, Texas to put bowls of this comforting soup on the table. Convenience items such as canned soup and process cheese simplify the preparation.

"great soup we loved it"

"I made this recipe with a couple of small changes. I added 5 chicken boullion cubes to the cooking water for the potatoes to give it a bit more flavor. I used 12 oz of Velveeta as called for in the recipe, but I subbed some spicy chipotle Velveeta that I had for about 4 oz of that cheese. It gave the soup a nice little kick. Mashing the finished soup with a potato masher helped to thicken it up. It was a real hit when I made it (along with a pot of chili) for a bonfire. I think everyone had seconds! I'm making it again tonight and plan on serving with a lot of crispy bacon on top :)"

"Was very easy to make and very good. I did add celery. To make it thicker I added flour and increased Velveeta to 16 oz. Will make again!"
