I love cream of potato soup. This recipe sounds really good. May I suggest one simple addition> Whenever I make potatoes for mashed potatoes; I always add a little bit of dry dill weed to the cooking water, as well as onion. It gives a really nice bit of difference to the flavor. I recommend adding some dill weed to the soup. I'm sure you will like it. Pat Burgard, Huntley, Illinois. P.S. I always add a little chopped onion when cooking any veggie. You'd be surprised how it enhances the flavor. As a result, all my kids and grand kids love their veggies.

This soup was wonderful! I did have to make a change to the recipe because I made my grocery list too quickly! :) I forgot to buy evaporated milk, so I used skim milk that I had in the fridge. It didn’t thicken like I thought it should, so I added a 1/2c of instant potatoes. After a pre-dinner taste test, I thought it was still missing something (most likely a result of my grocery store mishap!), so I stirred in a 1/2c of fat free sour cream and 1/4c real bacon crumbles and left the soup in the crock pot for another 30 minutes. The end result was perfect! Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe, AmyMCGS!

This is a very good base recipe to build from. Since I'm a vegetarian I made some tweaks -- traded the bouillon cubes and water for low-sodium veggie stock. I also threw in some carrots and peas to up the nutrients and stuck with plain ol' butter rather than margarine and 1% milk rather than condensed milk because I didn't have it. I didn't have cilantro either but the parsley was nice. Topped mine with a little extra sharp cheddar and it gave it a nice bite. This tasted just lovely with some fresh sourdough bread and a spinach salad on the side. Perfect for autumn!

My family loves this soup, and I love the fact that it is so easy! I find russet potatoes to be the best and use 2Tbl. butter instead of margarine. I didn't add cilantro the first time I made it because I didn't have any on hand, so I've just stuck w/ that. We love to put Sharp Cheddar cheese and crispy bacon (chicken or pork) on top. Soooo good! Thanks Amy!

This was really good. My boyfriend loved it! Just a tip (since you'll probably have a TON of leftovers) you'll want to add milk/water to the soup when you reheat it. It's incredibly thick! I did add a lot more garlic but that's the only alteration I made to the recipe.

A great tasting satisfying potato soup. Easy to put together, and a variety of toppings on the side so each soul can master their own creation. Gotta love it!

Great! I love the use of both parsley and cilantro in this soup. It's a definite keeper.
