    Hey Jude's Note:

    This came highly recommended from one of my co-workers and, honestly, I was kind of skeptical because of a couple of the ingredients. I'm usually not interested in recipes that have convenience foods in them but I gave this one a shot and, boy, is it good! I'm still not thrilled with the Velveeta and would like to find an easy-melting cheese to replace it so if anyone trying this recipe can come up with something, I'm all ears! This makes up a big pot of thick, hearty chowder that would be perfect for a Super Bowl party, or any get-together with lots of guys and's just something that would appeal to that group, you know? You can easily adjust the heat by the type of salsa you use....I used a mild salsa and it was perfect for us. Oh, my co-worker's neighbor got this recipe from Midwest Living magazine.

      Absolutely delicious! I used the white velveeta because I do not enjoy regular velveeta and it was a huge hit. Three out of four of my picky eaters raved about it.

      Loved this recipe! The only thing that I did different was add a little green salsa for an extra kick. This is going to become a repeat in my house!

      Very good recipe and very forgiving of substitutions. Each component can be replaced with something similar and the resulting soup still tastes delicious. I used homemade turkey broth and leftover turkey, a can of nacho cheese, a can of Rotel, a can of cream of mushroom soup, a large dose of Louisiana hot sauce, fresh green onions and unpeeled diced potatoes along with the rest of the ingredients as listed. Of course, it took longer to cook because the potatoes were raw, but it was well worth the wait... and who can complain about a simmering pot of soup keeping the house warm and cozy on a cold winter afternoon? Next time I will brown the diced potatoes with the celery, onions and garlic before adding them to the broth.
