This is the best soup. I made to use up what I had on hand and it turned out delicious. My family loved it and it was a quick dinner.

This soup was amazing. My husband is on his seconds now and said, "This is one of the best soups I have ever had," This coming from a man who usually responds when I ask him how something tastes with, "it's ok." I only added a little salt and my picture should show, if it uploads, red bell pepper instead of green cause I had it on hand. Worth a five star rating. Read More

I used some of my homemade pesto rather than the dry basil and parsley. I also omitted the milk and flour because my husband isn't fond of cream soups. It was wonderful and very simple to make. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Read More

Excellent! Only thing I did different was I made it in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours and added more veggies. For the last hour or an additional hour you add your milk mixture and turn slow cooker to high. Read More

Exceptional. The flavor is wonderful. I used extra sweet potato and ham and next time I will use more and bigger pieces of celery carrot and green pepper. The creamy broth has enough flavor to carry a lot. Really a simple fast and delicious soup. Thanks for a new regular soup. The second time I made this I used a cup or so of all the vegies and sautéed them in EVOO before adding the flour (cooked that a bit) then the stock. I used gouda cheese. still wonderful. Thanks.

I made this soup with some left over spiral ham and it was outstanding! So much flavor packed into each bite. I did make two changes: 1) I left out the corn 2) I ran it through the blender at the end once everything was cooked through then I added some fresh chunks of ham to the creamed soup. Thìs is by far the best loaded potato stylesoup I've ever had. Read More
