Way too much pepper. I did like the carrots and celery in it. I think I mashed mine a little too much, but it came out tasty . . . except for the pepper. Thanks Loveit! Made for Help a Naked Recipe game.

Yum! I must have had really big potatoes, because I needed to use 3 cups of broth to cover them and cook. To compensate, I reduced the milk to 1 1/2 cups. I didn't have celery so I diced two carrots, and I also had to add more salt. Oh, I used pepper jack cheese because we like a kick...that was great. I think next time, I will use more onion, and maybe throw in some peas. Thanks!

Made this potato soup today and it turned out great! The only thing I changed was that I used a chedder cheese instead of swiss and used chicken broth instead of the vegtable broth. This recipe is a keeper.
