ORIGINAL TEXT: This soup cooks up thick and quick in no time at all! It uses a can of potato soup as a base. I haven't made it yet, but will report back when I do. UPDATE: Well, I finally made this, and I wanted to tell you all how it came out... which was not great. Even with a bunch of changes to liven it up (I sauteed a whole onion and two cloves of garlic first, and then added a bunch more spices , including red pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning), the soup was pretty bland, and the flavors did not meld well. I might only give it 3 stars if I was rating it. Boo hiss! Instead of this recipe, I suggest Almost Too-Easy Potato-Chicken-Cheese Soup (Recipe #24003) which was way, way, way better! (If you do still want to make this one, I think you will be happier using a vegetable mix instead of just broccoli. Also, definitely chop the vegetable mix before adding it to the pot, otherwise the chunks are too big). Sorry to disappoint!
