A friend brought me this soup when I was sick. It tastes like it simmered for hours, but basic ingredients make it a snap to prepare. —Pat Maruca, Philippi, West Virginia


  • 1 package (30 ounces) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 4 ounces process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
