Nice hearty soup.

Top Review by Erika S.

I had to tweak the recipe a bit for our tastes, but once I did that, this soup was a hit! The recipe, as prepared, is quite bland. Being in the south, we're used to a lot of flavor -- I had to add a lot more seasoning - salt, garlic powder, a teaspoon of chicken bouillon granules - to suit our tastes. Additionally, I used a bit more Velveeta than called for and threw in a handful of grated cheese blend. Once it was complete, it earned a hefty five stars. I'm always sorry to see folks post that a recipe had no flavor, or lacked a particular spice. That's what we do as cooks - we improvise until it suits our tastes!
