"Delicious comfort food! Served with some soft white mountain bread and it was a huge hit. Plan on using chopping carrots to larger chunks to add dimension (as the recipe calls for shredded carrots). Otherwise super tasty as is and will make again."

I loved this soup and I truly am a picky eater. As a side I made basic bread and dipped it into the soup. It was delicious. We are a family of 8 and it made exactly 8 servings. Unfortunately I should have doubled it but I didn't know my family would like it!

Great soup. I left out the salt, more than enough in the meat and cheese. I crumbled bacon in mine.

Added Montreal Steak Marinade (dry), extra cheese, garlic powder & left out potatoes. Teenagers love it

Teenagers loved it! I added Montreal Steak Seasoning packet to ground beef. I chopped the carrots, add more potatoes. A little worchesshire. Served with a grill cheese sandwich on Texas Toast. It was fabulous.

Made this today used a little extra potato and turned out pretty good. A little better than I expected it to. But not quite what I wanted it to be.

I haven't even added the sour cream yet & this soup is really good! I'll add to my review once the family has tried it. Thank you for posting it.

Simple and quite tasty! even satisfied a picky 9y/o and 2y/o. Don't let the look of it deceive you, this recipe is a keeper,especialy for those chaotic days when the wind and chill are perfect for soup but you need something more filling.
