Oh my goodness, this is soooooo good. I had dental surgery and am on a soft/liquid diet for a few weeks so I made this, and it totally hit the spot. Very filling and flavorful. I used hot Hatch green chiles because I like a lot of heat, and it did not disappoint. I'll have a hard time ever eating the traditional potato soup now. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

This is one of my family's favorite soups that I make! I did tweek it a little bit... I add about a pound of hamburger scramble fried to make it more filling. And I use the H.E.B. brand of velvetta cheese instead of monterey jack. It makes it much creamier, and they LOVE IT! Definitely a 5 star recipe at our house!

Good soup! Definitely great for those snowy days. The fresh cilantro adds great flavor. The green chili flavor is pretty subtle. Next time I think I would double the green chilis and also add some flour after sauteing the onions to thicken it up a bit. Thanx for posting this!
