"I really like this, my family says it's alright. I top it with sour cream so it isn't too spicy for the kids."

"I made this years ago, it's super easy (always a winner in my book) and I'm still making it, tastes great and people are always really surprised by the fact it starts with boxed potatoes. Great quick soup! Loaf of Italian bread and salad and you are good to go."

"This is an easy and quick soup that I will definitely make again. I used a can of diced tomatoes and a can of diced green chiles because that is what I had on hand. Also added a little cumin and chili powder for extra flavor. Thank you, Sherry, for the great recipe!"

"This has been a family favorite since it was first published over a decade ago. I always have the ingredients on hand and it goes from kettle to table in under 30 minutes. I'd give it ten stars if I could!"

"My kids really like this meal. It's a great go-to when the kids ask what is for dinner and I've completely lost track of time. On occasion I've added kielbasa or leftover chicken. Very versatile. Thanks"
