    Taste really good. I enjoyed it alot.
    This soup is an excellent choice for a rainy day. We top our soup with crispy bacon and diced green onions. It is so good!! We like to make homemade bread when we have this and a green salad on the side. Both of our teenage kids and their friends love it Give it a try :
    this is a great start to making a nice potato soup
    my kids and my husband loved it.Its great for soup and sandwiches..
    This soup didn't do much for me. When I read that the base of this recipe was water, I automatically substituted chicken stock, but it still was lacking flavor and was too runny. If I make this again, I'll cut it the stock down to 4-5 cups and use a stronger cheese.
    It was delicious and soooo easy! Perfect for a busy nursing student- I even had leftovers to take to clinical with me the next day!
    Excellent soup. Extremely easy to make (espcially if one uses a stick blender).
    Second time made, used two cups cheese vs what was called for.
    Third time made, added cubed smoked kilbasa (after blending, of course) which made a GREAT meal with crusty French bread.
    I've been making this recipe since 2002. It has become a staple. So easy and delicious! Instead of pouring the soup into a blender, I remove some potato chunks into a bowl and puree the rest of the soup with a hand blender. Much easier, and safer. I then add the potatoe chunks back into the soup.
