    Paul!!! The soup was fantastic! I substituted FF cheese and FF milk. I also measured it out and it made 8 cups of soup, so instead of the 6 servings, I changed it to 8 servings of 1 cup each, which brought it down to 171 calories and 0.9 grams of fat per cup! Woot Woot! A new staple food! - 11/20/07

    I added minced garlic and some sea salt to it. We had it for dinner along with crusty bread adn a sald. I also offered a dallop of fat free sour cream to give it that loaded baked potato flavor. Yummy...wonderful comfort food! Thanks for sharing!!! - 11/14/07

    I used real potatoes (lower in calories less fat) then added some southwest seasoning of my own. I also substituted low fat cheese. Turned out great but I think next time I would rather have a few real bits of well drained bacon sprinkled on top. - 11/20/07

    I made this for dinner this week. I used potatoes o'brien which already had bell peppers and onions cubed up in it. It was VERY good. Husband and the kids liked it too. Super easy. - 1/17/08

    This soup is very easy and extremely tasty. Two cups of cheese seems to give it the perfect consistency. Try using refrigerated diced potatoes with onions for chunkier potatoes and no onion chopping! - 11/18/07

    This was quick and easy and quite good! I used two pounds of potatoes because we need to use a bunch up. I just chopped them up then mashed them at the end. Also, we didn't have bacos so I used some turkey bacon. Easy substitutes and it was yummy! - 3/8/12

    Very good! I will probably take the suggestions to try it with the potatoes that already have onions and peppers in it to save time. - 2/13/08

    We had to add a little red pepper to this dish and hint of hickory smoke to kick up the flavor a bit, but otherwise good deal! - 1/4/08

    Very good! Used shredded hashbrown instead of cube, kind of a chowder texture. - 11/12/07

  • Mine did not turn out so well, it was like mashed potatoes. Think I might try again but use real potatoes instead of the hash brown potatoes. The taste was ok, just not the right texture. - 1/9/14

  • This soup was thick, creamy and cheesy! Pretty generous serving size, too. Just needed to add a little salt for my taste, but otherwise very tasty and filling. Will definitely make again! - 2/28/12

  • I used Sharp cheddar cheese and half & half in lieu of milk. Also added a little garlic powder and real bacon. Was delicious! - 2/28/12

  • I pretty much followed the recipe as listed other than increasing the onion & celery to 1C plus I added 1/2 C diced green pepper & 1 red anaheim (for color & flavor) and added garlic powder & red pepper flakes. Very easy & tasty...the perfect meal to cozy up with on a cold N. Utah night. =D - 10/26/11
