Delicious, thick and creamy soup. I used 1 lb of ground beef and the cheese I used was New Zealands Chesdale brand (approx 250gram packet) Will definitely make this again, thanks for posting.
We love this soup! I always double it. I use regular milk instead of evaporated because evaporated made it a little sweet. I use Velveeta and Tostito's brand Queso Cheese dip which melts very creamy! My kids like to sprinkle on a spoonful of dill pickle relish which makes it taste even more like a cheeseburger. This soup is great for lunch or supper on a cold winter day!
it was pretty good the first time. the second time I made this I excluded the sour cream, added more onions, garlic, pepper, salt, and more beef. I was quite happy with the results along with the others in the house~!
Outstanding Chowder. The whole family loved it. Super easy to make. Very filling and a good compliment to the chowder was a fresh baked loaf of bread. We are looking forward to leftovers for lunch tommorow and will definetly be making this chowder again. Thank you for posting this recipe.
This was a very good soup and the only thing I can think of to improve on it, would be to add 1 teaspoon of dried dillweed to the potato/broth mixture for a little added taste. My husband has already planned his next meal with the leftover of this he liked it so well. We didn't have any carrots, so I added a cup of corn and a cup of broccoli cuts. I also used cheddar cheese instead of American because that's what I had on hand. We'll definitely be having this again...and again. UPDATE 10/28/08 -- I made this again already (told you I would!) and I added 1 tsp of dill and that knocked this OUT OF THE PARK!
I can't believe I have never rated this soup because I have probably made it 10 times. This is such a GREAT soup! I modify it a bit for my family's taste by using onion powder instead of onions, no carrots and half-and-half instead of evaporated milk because that's what I keep on hand. In the winter, someone in my family requests this at least twice a month. It makes great leftovers too for lunches. I also add a few dashes of hot sauce and use shredded cheese instead of pickles for garnish. If we are Low(er) Carbing I leave out the potatoes and the flour. This is an easy, delicious, versatile recipe that I REALLY recommend trying!
My wife made this recipe and neither myself or my son enjoyed it. She is a good cook, so I highly doubt that it was that. Others did like it though but it was not my style, but i would say it tasted what you would imagine that prison food tasted like. Thanks for the good try, and I hope others enjoy it.
I substituted a half cup of grated cheddar and used only 1 cup of processed cheese. Still a good soup.
