Love the soup..but didn't go for all the dairy products. I used chicken broth instead of the heavy cream...added chives....used "real" shredded cheese instead of the velveeta. Ham or chorizo are welcome additions too. I threw everything in the crockpot and let it cook on low for 5 hours....very comforting on a chilly day. Very versatile. Thank you! If the soup is too thin for your liking, try adding in some instant mashed potato flakes to thicken it up.
I have made this soup many, many times and it is always delicious. When my best friend was going through chemo treatments, I would make and freeze multiple bags of this soup so she always had it on hand. It was the one food that she could consistently keep down after her treatments. Also, with all the calories and carbs, it helped keep weight on her as she fought her illness. I'm happy to say that she is now a BC Survivor and she swears this soup is one of the reasons. This is a very hearty and delicious soup and super easy to make. It a great soup on a cold winter night and it absolutely hits the spot. It's definitely not a low fat meal but when you are craving a high carb, hearty, stick to your ribs soup, this is it!!
I halved the recipe and it still made a lot. This soup is very tasty but it is VERY rich! I found that a small bowl really filled me up. The soup is full of potato and bacon-y cheesy yum so it makes a nice main dish soup. Really good with a salad and some crusty bread.
