I am so glad you all are enjoying my recipe but please do not complain if your soup doesn't turn out correctly b/c you used the wrong cheese... The proceesed cheese adds a creamy factor that cheddar doesn't have - please try the recipe (any recipe for that matter) first before you alter it... thanks!! Read More

My husband enjoyed this soup but I really did not care for it. I thought that the Velveeta was very over powering and that was mostly all you could taste. Read More

Very good soup! Per other reviewers we added some extra potatoes and a dash of cayenne pepper. Although extra potatoes were added I think I'll even add some more (use 3 cups) and maybe an extra 1/2 carrots and celery. We sprinkled some dried parsley overall! Looked and tasted great!! Thanks Janet! Read More

Thanks Janet your recipe just got me first place in our annual soup cook-off at work. Got lots of raves! I followed the recipe almost to the letter but did use more potatoes than called for and at the end I added a couple good dashes of cayenne pepper. Must say that the cayenne really did wake up the flavors in this soup. Thanks again! Read More

Great job Janet! This is the best soup I've made in years and I've made it several times. I double the potatoes and the soy sauce increase the other veggies by 1/2 cup or so and make it truly lowfat by using skim milk and Velveeta Light. I've also ended up spreading the recipe around my office once they smelled what was coming from my cubicle! Great soup! Pam Read More

This is my new favorite soup. It took a little time to prepare but it was sooooo worth it. The second time I made it I did add 1/2 can whole kernel corn. If your family likes corn the way we do you should try that as well. ENJOY! Read More
