Get your next dinner party off to an impressive start with this savory cream soup. Guests will love the roasted tomato flavor and crispy bread slices. If you make it in summer, try grilling the tomatoes instead.—Patterson Watkins, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
A friend gave me the recipe for this chunky vegetable soup, which I've been making for years. Recently, I changed the ingredients to give it some southwestern flair--and my husband liked it even better.

“I really like to make potato cheese soup from scratch,“ says Karen Pigmon of Corning, California. “But one night we were in a hurry, so I added a few ingredients to a can of potato soup instead. It was so good that now I always keep a few cans on hand…it’s so quick and easy! Serve it in bread bowls, and it’s always a big hit with kids.“
This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. I was raised on a farm and these ingredients were readily available in our area. We have many potato farms nearby, and, of course, being "America's Dairyland," there's always plenty of cheese and milk for this great-tasting soup. —Darlene Alexander, Nekoosa, Wisconsin
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.
