"I didn't feel good so with it being in the 90's outside I made this soup today and I loved it and will make it again! It is not a thick soup but that doesn't bother me. It has a wonderful taste and you can add anything you want to it to make it spicy or loaded."

"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 :)"

"In order to get the soup thicker, you have to take out some of the water after done boiling the potatoes. I think I took out like 3 cups of water. Also, I used 16 oz of velveeta instead of 12. (I could not find a 12 oz block of velveeta at store so I bought a 16 oz block and used all of it)."

"Added carrots and celery as others suggested. It really needs more seasoning. Maybe some chicken bullion would help. I would also use heavy cream instead of milk to thicken, if you don't mind the calories of course."

They in turn made it for their church group and have had many people ask for the recipe. It was very easy to make and tastes so good. I've recommended it to friends and coworkers."
