  • In a large pot over high heat, combine the potatoes and carrots and add water to cover. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender. Drain the water and add the milk. Continue to cook over low heat until milk starts to simmer.

  • Stir in the cheese soup, then stir in the flour slowly, until mixed. Add 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, the reserved mushroom mixture, peas, corn and broccoli and heat through. Garnish with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.

Wonderful in every way!! Very cheesy and the combination of vegetables is perfect. I'd recommend mixing the flour with some of the milk prior to adding to the rest of the milk and then add the cheese soup. No lumps that way. Made 3-3/4 quarts--7 big servings. Read More

i have lots of mixed feelings about this recipe. As is it's pretty bland. I would much prefer a roux-based soup but went with this tonight based on ingredients and ease of prep and my endless quest to try new things. Changes that might amp up the flavor would include dissovling some bouillon cubes in the simmering milk mixture? My kids actually devoured this a near miracle but i suspect it's because the cheese soup offered that "fake orange cheese" flavor they seem to love so much! however with so many roux-based cheesy vegetable chowder soups on this site i think they're a much better bet. in a pinch this could work but the results are so-so at best. going homemade and taking the extra five minutes is going to be worth it in this case.

This is a yummy recipe. Instead of condensed cream of cheddar soup (which was expensive) I made my own roux using butter flour milk and cheddar cheese. I left out the additional flour called for in the recipe. Read More

Excellent! My favorite recipe on here so far. The onions and mushrooms make a surprisingly flavorful base. I substituted one bag of mixed frozen vegetables for the fresh veggies and halved the milk and cheese soup concentrate for an even heartier soup. Read More

Wonderful soup! I followed Suzamma's advice with the flour. (I mixed it with some of the milk.) It worked great. I also added some Basil. This recipe is a new favorite. Read More

This was really bland. Made it exact and will NOT make again. Spent the whole time eating it going back over the recipe wondering what I did wrong. My boyfriend and I ate it anyway because it made so much. Read More
