Potato (Velveeta®) Cheese Soup

Potato (Velveeta®) Cheese Soup

Starsha 3

"A spicy and delicious soup given to me by my mother. She got the recipe from a friend who grew up in Louisiana. To save effort, a bag of hash brown potatoes may be substituted for the shredded potatoes. You may also add some crumbled up bacon to the soup. Add more or less potatoes depending on your soup preferences. Also, add cornstarch if soup is not as thick as you desire it to be. Great served with bread."

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 fe...

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 s...

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, i...

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...

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 dif...

Made as written and I found it bland. I added after garlic powder, hot sauce, carrots, celery, corn, chicken and some other spices. Thickend it up with some cornstarch.

Not great. Kind of bland.

very good! Family loved it. Even my 3 year old who will not eat potatoes ate a bowl full.

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 s...
