It's easy to make and I haven't met someone yet who hasn't liked it. It placed 2nd in a soup contest.

Good recipe. If you don't have or like rice you can use about 2 cups of chopped potatoes. Also I didn't use the celery or carrots and instead spiced it up with a chopped jalapeno. If you want this soup to be thicker you'll have to modify either the broth or milk amounts. This recipe makes a good batch, so have a container to store it in the fridge

We were disappointed in this soup. Compared to any average chowder, it doesn't hold up, and the nutrition just isn't there, so why bother? Sad, because with all the praise I was really looking forward to a winner.

Very tasty! Received rave reviews from my guests. I lightened up the recipe by using fat-free milk, light sour cream, and 2% Velveeta. I also subsituted ground lean turkey for the beef. Will definitely be making this again.

This soup was so good my teenagers and their friends raved about it! Easy to make and great for a cool fall evening! I've made it twice in the last month!

Delicious, easy, filling, and weight loss friendly! Fairly even balance of carbs and protein. Lots of good texture and flavor. I've made this several times at the request of my husband. You can do most of it ahead of time, and then put together at mealtime. Definitely a keeper. Thanks!

This is my family's favorite soup. They ask for it the most of any soup I make.
