Delicious! I substituted Kraft Shredded Mozzarella/Cheddar mix for Velveeta; and made a white sauce instead of using the chicken soup. We are vegetarians. Thank you, Tammy, for sharing this recipe.

So easy, so tasty. I had everything I needed in the pantry. My husband gave it two thumbs up! I will add more potatoes next time around, but that is a personnel preference!

I didn't feel good so with it being in the 90's outside I made this soup today and I loved it and will make it again! It is not a thick soup but that doesn't bother me. It has a wonderful taste and you can add anything you want to it to make it spicy or loaded.

Great tasting soup. Good on a cold winter night or any get together.

I made this recipe with a couple of small changes. I added 5 chicken boullion cubes to the cooking water for the potatoes to give it a bit more flavor. I used 12 oz of Velveeta as called for in the recipe, but I subbed some spicy chipotle Velveeta that I had for about 4 oz of that cheese. It gave the soup a nice little kick. Mashing the finished soup with a potato masher helped to thicken it up. It was a real hit when I made it (along with a pot of chili) for a bonfire. I think everyone had seconds! I'm making it again tonight and plan on serving with a lot of crispy bacon on top :)

Was very easy to make and very good. I did add celery. To make it thicker I added flour and increased Velveeta to 16 oz. Will make again!
