This soup was wonderful! My kids loved it. I used 1/2 medium cheddar cheese and 1/2 sharp cheddar cheese. I also used more potatoes. I will be making this again soon. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

Perfect soup. Exactly what I was looking for. Used extra sharp cheddar, canned potatoes, and 2% milk.

Simple, tasty and fun to customize.
A great recipe for beginning cooks.
Did not use 3cups cups of cheese, maybe about half that, BUT had plenty on hand to add as garnish. No parmesan used, but did add crumbled bacon as garnish, daughter also added dollop of sour cream to hers.
I did stick blend the heck out of the veggies (I'm soo picky)-before the potatoes were added, then a little more to break up the bigger pieces of potato. Thanks for helping me eat my vegetables!
Plan on experimenting and adding broccoli to see if my sister will like it, may use the full 3 cups cheese for that. She loves broccoli cheese soup. (I actually like broccoli o.k.-I won't have to puree the heck out of those.)

This was wonderful kittencal! I doubled this recipe and modified just a few things when I made your soup by adding a little more celery than the recipe called for and I also substituted a gluten free flour for the regular flour so my daughter could have it. I transferred it to a crock pot and brought it to a Superbowl party last February, everyone loved it. I have made it several times since then..it's always a hit!

Wow !! This is the recipe I have been looking for !!
I wanted a good cheese/potato soup recipe to build on and duplicate one of the best soups I've ever eaten in a restaurant.
The soup was described as "cheesy potato soup with california blend veggies".
So I made this recipe (my own chicken broth too) and added some cooked cauliflower and broccoli.
It turned out PERFECTLY.......I am so happy. This recipe is probably open to many other ideas too, it is a good one to experiment with.
I was a little skeptical until the cheese was added....it seemed to lack something, but the cheese really pulled it all together. The flavors were just perfect.
Thank you so very much.....(been trying to do this on my own for about 3 yrs. and just couldn't get it right). Now it seems so simple, but the right basic recipe was the key.

Great recipe came out perfect. Didn't have chicken broth, so used 1 packet pork seasoning (think it came from a Top Ramen pack) and 2 beef bouillon cubes (hey, I needed soup and used what I had on hand)
Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful soup to warm up with on a chilly evening! I used 1 cup skim milk and 1 cup half and half, and the soup was not too thick for me. I think it would have been too rich for my tastes with all half and half. Used crumbled beef bacon on top. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting.

Very thick soup. I used 3 cups of broth to make it less thick. I mashed half of the potatoes, and others cubed. Turned out very yummy. Also added 2 tsp of lime juice to make it a little tangy.
