    Loved it but used Cheddar instead of Velveeta.

    I love this soup; its one of my favourites. I substitute ground chicken or turkey for the ground beef and I add garlic. I have used different types of cheese, but the Velvetta works well. These are just my own personal preferences. Turns out great every time, no matter what type of cheese I use.

    Made this in the crockpot and it turned out delicious! Instead of velveeta cheese I just used what I had in the fridge, half a block of habanero cheese and about 1/3 a small jar of cheese wiz. Left out the sour cream.

    love this soup. use tater tots bake nice and crispy and then cut them up and add to soup. Also add 1 tbsp. of Ketchup, yellow mustard and dill relish. I use sharp cheddar and American to the soup instead of velvetta. Everyone I give it to raves about this soup. Secert a half tsp of worchershire sauce.

    Can anyone tell me how much sour cream? I've looked and can't find it in the list. I guess my seeing eye dog needs a seeing eye dog.

    It tastes amazing and I have made it for family dinner for about three times and my family has loved it every time.
