Mmmmm. I love these simple semi-homemade type recipes. Cheesy with a little spice. Took a while for my potatoes to get soft so I had to add a little extra water. Used about 3-4 inch block cut off the Velveeta.
My family loves this soup! We add chicken strips or 1.5 cups of shredded chicken and make a meal out of it. In the step to add cheese, we also add sliced black olives with the chicken. We heat til cheese melts and then add in the milk. Mild Rotel tomatoes and chilies usually give it enough kick for me. For the adventurous, add a little hot sauce! Thanks for posting this favorite!
This looks very good. I was going to try it until I read the nutrition information. One serving has more sodium than I consume in an entire day. Buying low sodium ingredients would help but I've never seen Ro-tel as a low sodium product, or the au gratin potatoes. But I think the recipe could be somewhat salvaged by using plain old potatoes, tomatoes with no added sodium, and green chilies, roasted, peeled and chopped and taco seasoning mix without sodium. I am going to make it and will garnish each serving with a spoonful of pico de gallo and sour cream.
My family loved it! Warm and yummy on a chilly fall evening, my family loved it after a night of trick or treating!
Absolutely fabulous and easy recipe. I made no changes to this recipe and it was perfect "as is". The ONLY change I made was to put out shredded cheese and sour cream as well as the crushed tortilla chips for the topping. In the fall and winter my family loves soup and this will be on the menu often as after work I love EASY, so this soup satisfies everyone.
this is our favorite potato soup..had it for the first time at a friend's house...got the recipe and have made it several times since Nutmeg74
I love this soup- I am always asking for the recipe, I am so glad you posted it sis. The flavor can not be beat!
I have used a similar recipe (but with Am. Cheese) and everyone loves this - I mean people go crazy for it!
