This delicious soup recipe was shared by a friend and instantly became a hit with my husband. Its big cheese flavor blends wonderfully with the flavor of the vegetables. I first served this creamy soup as part of a holiday meal, but now we enjoy it throughout the year. —Dee Falk, Stromsburg, Nebraska
Here's a real gem! After tasting a similar soup at a popular restaurant in the Twin Cities, I came up with my own version. Everyone who tastes it says it's wonderful. Adding the almonds at the end gives the soup a fun crunch.

This simple homemade soup gets a head start from canned potato soup and frozen broccoli. People will be surprised to hear that it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare(if you tell them!).—Gladys Schuler, Bismarck, North Dakota
This chowder was invented by my niece, who took a basic potato soup recipe and added some of her own ingredients. The results were "souperb"! I was a cook at the time, and I tried her recipe at work. It was the hit of the season!
Cathy Smith of Amarillo, Texas shares a stick-to-the-ribs family pleaser. “Chunky and cheesy, this rich creamy soup is simply wonderful during cold winter months,” she notes. TASTY TIP: If your family prefers a “Cheeseburger Soup” flavor, substitute lean ground beef for the ground turkey.
