    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

    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

  • 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.

  • Yummy! I used the cubed potatoes with onion. I also added spices like minced garlic, a touch of chili powder, seasoning salt, sea salt and worcestshire. Before I added the milk/flour, I took my hand blender and broke almost all the cubes down for a much smoother blend. Wonderful soup - so yummy! - 1/31/10

  • I really liked this but it lacked some flavor. I added salt and may take some of the other suggestions. Also I think if you add the bacon (I used real bacon bits) at the beginning that might help give it more flavor. Pretty good though - 1/4/10

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Great recipe! The only changes I made was to divid it into 8 (it's a lot of soup and rich) and used chopped up real bacon instead of bacon bits. I am sure the bacon bits would be fine, I just didn't have any. Very yummy! - 11/9/09
