Unlike you to forget a step. I can't figure out when to add the chicken broth/stock. Figuring it is at the beginning with the veggies. Hoping that is right because I have invited my brother over for diner. Wish me luck!

Knowing my kids would enjoy this soup, I went ahead and doubled the recipe. I am glad I did because they loved it. I only had one can of evaporated milk, so I used skim milk for the rest. I also added a little extra cheese. I decided to puree the soup so skipped the thickening step. Thanks for the recipe.

This was very good. I liked how it was so thick and creamy... and being low-fat was a major plus with me. My hubby said the cheese completed it.

Hubby really enjoyed this. I used about 2 cups of potatoes (1 large potato), 1/8 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp bouillon powder (trying to lower sodium content) & left out the celery. It only took 10 min of simmering time to get the taters tender. When I added the cornstarch mix (used fat free half & half), the soup thickened up QUICK! So I added the rest of the liquid. I used about 1/4 cup less half & half than called for by accident, but it worked fine! We actually didn't stir in the cheese; offered it as an optional topping--but hubby used some croutons instead. Thanks so much for sharing--it was rich, creamy & a great recipe.

This is very good, so thick and creamy as well as being low fat. I used fat free evaporated milk and omitted the cheese. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

Not one drop left of this delicious soup tonight! DH and I ate the entire thing! The potatoes almost melt in your mouth because they are so tender. I used the fat-free evaporated milk and the soup was very thick and creamy; I used about 1/2t of cayenne, so it really warmed us up too! My DH added fat-free cheddar cheese to his, but I liked it so much without that I didn't add any to mine. Will be making again

This is VERY thick and creamy! I used the 3 potatoes and also used fat free half & half. I probably added a little extra cheese as well. We really enjoyed this soup. We're going to have the left-over soup for lunch today -- I'm sure it will be ever bit as good warmed over as it was last night. It was so thick that I may have to add a bit of half & half to it today! I made this for Kitten's Cookathon in memory of her husband, John.

Very thick, creamy and satisfying. Quite impressive for a lower fat soup! It's thick enough that you probably could skip the cornstarch and just mash this a little. Thanx for posting this. I'll use this recipe again. Made for Kittencal's Cookathon in memory of her dear husband.

This is a delicious, hearty and wonderfully cheesy soup...a meal in itself! I made exactly as posted and wouldn't change a thing. It has enough flavor that I believe I can thin down the leftovers and serve as a first course. Made for Kittencal's Cookathon, in memory of her dear husband John.
