Mmmmmm! Great soup! It has just the right amount of veggies and ham. I made this exactly as written and everyone loved it. Thanx for posting!

I thought one cup of cheese was not enough since the chicken flavor was stronger than the cheese, so I added another cup of cheese and then it was perfect! Thanks for posting the recipe.

DH made this all by himself, so it is a very easy recipe since he hates to cook :) Very ymmy. We omitted the ham, but other than that made as is. Very filling and satisfying. DD ate it also we drained off some of the liquid and made hers more of a mashed potato consistancy.
