This was an easy to make, good tasting soup. I made a half recipe and used a russett potato in place of the red since that's what I had and added a little salt and pepper. I also used the immersion blender before adding the cheese and sour cream. Made a great, light lunch! Reviewed for the Bargain Basement tag game.

This recipe was very easy to put together, has a wonderful aroma while cooking. I too blended the soup once cooled down. Can't wait to eat! I will definatly share this with my co-workers.

Delicious!!! This was my first attempt at a home made soup, and it turned out very well. Everything came out perfect, but I did end up adding some seasoning to taste. Made a wonderful dinner for my family during a really cold night! Served it with garlic bread for the total meal.
