I love making this recipe! I serve with garlic cheese bread. For some reason the recipe was not printed correctly... I boil the water and seasonings, then add the potatoes and allow to boil a few minutes before I add the processed cheese. Otherwise the cheese tends to burn and stick to the bottom of the pan. Cook on low once the cheese is added. I also wanted to note that the recipe says to use one block of cheese... If you purchase the regular sized block of Velveeta, then you actually only use 1/2 the block (1 lb) of cheese. They do have smaller 1 lb blocks of cheese you can buy as well.
Very tasty and easy-to-make comfort food. I used a 20 ounce bag of "Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns" as the shredded potatoes because I had some on hand that I needed to use. And since the soup now had a "southwestern" flavor going I eliminated the Cajun seasoning and instead just added a few shakes of Tabasco sauce and left everything else the same as the recipe called for. This was a hit with my family even my picky teenager who told me that the next time she has a sore throat she wants me to make this comforting soup for her--if not several times before then!
I really liked this. I was surprised that it was as substantial as it was since it was made with water rather than milk. It is a very good base for additions to it which adds interest. Plus it's far lower in calories than other recipes I found and it's so easy to make! Thank you for posting.
This was super easy super quick super GOOD! I have a few variations though. Do NOT add any additional salt the bouillon cubes and Velveeta cheese add more than enough! In fact the next time I make it I will use 3 cubes instead of 4. I bought 2% Milk Velveeta cheese. It's 1/3 less fat and adds a milk creaminess I like. If you add this kind Velveeta do NOT let your soup boil. It will curdle. If your soup isn't thick enough like mine wasn't add flour/water mixture and sour cream. Gave a great addl. flavor. I also used the hash brown shredded potatoes. perfect so much less work! You can add so many things to this soup I'm thinking broccoli would be a good addition too.
This was really tasty I loved the flavor I halved the recipe and made enough for about 4 people I think next time I may just cube the potatoes for more texture....I loved this something different without a lot of effort....Thanks
My family did not like this at all. My favorite food is cheese but this was just way too cheesy for us and I only used 3/4 of a block of velveeta. The one thing we liked about it was the Cajun seasoning which made it edible enough to choke down. But 2 of us ended up with stomach aches from the cheese and we each only had half a bowl. I made this with a half a turkey sandwich for each person.
Very yummy! I skipped the Cajun seasoning and added a couple herbs like oregano. I cubed the potatoes instead of shreding them then ran the cooked soup through the blender. I will make this again and again!
