"This is the second or third time I've made this soup now. Here's what I'm doing differently. I only use half of the recommended potatoes with all of the liquid plus an extra cup of milk. I skip the..." See more bacon (don't like bacon) and add lots and lots of extra cheese. You may add even more milk or chicken stock. Good flavour though! "
"This recipe turned out okay, but as in any slow cooker recipe I should have remembered to add the milk at the very end. I got curdled soup. Over all it tasted okay, just looked like cottage cheese. ..." See more And I added more spices, like tabasco squeez'ins (the left over pulp from making tabaco sauce), to give it some zip."
