"This was a good! It lacked extra flavor. I added cheddar cheese on top of the soup and used celery instead of the mixed veggies. It was still delicious, but I would have liked a little more flavor."

"Delicious! I added a tiny bit of cheddar cheese too. If you don't thaw the tots, it makes a great Freezer Recipe!"

"My husband loves this! Makes plenty! I don't use the reduced-fat soups but that's OK. I also like to sprinkle some shredded cheddar on the top & let it melt the last few minutes it cooks. :)"
