"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."
"This was a delicious and easy soup. We added some broccoli also. 4 stars only because the 1 tsp of pepper was too much...I didn't notice that other reviewers had mentioned this until too late. Next time I'd cut in half."
"This is some of the best potato soup I have ever had! Sooo good. I only made a couple of minor modifications. Like other reviewers, I used chicken broth in place of the vegetable broth, and I cut the pepper amount in half. I also added a little extra cheese to make it extra cheesy. This is such an easy recipe to make and it turned out perfectly. This will definately be a regular in my house."
"I made this for my office, and it was a big hit! I doubled the recipe, and used red pepper instead of black just because I prefer the flavor. I also added the pepper and parsley to the boiling potatoes to get the flavor in the potatoes. I also added a can of rinsed canned corn. I made it all the way to the thickening part, and after it was thickened, put it in a crockpot and refrigerated it until the next day. When I got the pot to work, I added the swiss cheese, put it on low to heat up, and it was delicious! (Got a little thick, more like chowder, but I like it that way. Served it with a cabbage salad for a vegetarian feast! Crusty bread would have been good with it, too.......next time......"
"I changed the recipe based on the stuff in our kitchen. I didn't have any celery.(although i think it needs it) I used kitchen stock instead of vegetable. And I didn't use the dried parsley. It was wonderful! I added about a 1 1/2 cups of diced ham because it was left over from Christmas dinner. I would deffinately make it again. Great lunch on a cold day."
"Yum!! Yum!! This was so perfect on a rainy cold night like tonight! I also used chicken broth instead of the vegetable broth and used mild cheddar cheese insteda of the swiss cheese. This was great!! Thank you so much!! I will be making this often this winter!! Thank you!!"
"This was so easy, and a great recipe. I'm not usually a leftover person, but a great soup like this actually tastes better the second day than the first night. I did use only 1/2 t. pepper, and used cheddar cheese, and it was so yummy. Also, I used chicken broth (like almost everyone else)."
"My family and I really loved this soup. I used chicken stock in place of the vegetable broth. So easy to make, great for a quick supper with a nice salad...thanks for posting."
"My kids love this soup. I use chicken broth instead though and I substitute cheddar jack cheese for the swiss. I also put more cheese in."
"I am giving this recipe 4 stars because of the peppery taste I also didn't care for the parsley either. I ended up adding 2 more potatoes and more liquid to cut some of the pepper flavor. The recipe is easy to prepare with basic ingredients on hand. I also used chicken broth. I may try this recipe again with modifications to the listed ingredients."
"Loved this soup! Very simple and super yummy! I did think there was a bit much pepper so would add less next time but otherwise, wonderful soup."
"Delicious, easy, filling soup! Really deserves to be eaten in front of a roaring fireplace while the rain lashes against the windowpanes, it's that type of comfort food. DH has asked for a bit less pepper next time; he acknowledges that he has a wimpy palate. Edited to say that I've now had it with swiss and I've had it with cheddar, and I liked the swiss better."
"This was really easy to make! I made this for a light supper with a salad, and the BF loved it too! I added a bit of cayenne pepper to it, because we both like spice!! I'll be making this again!"
"This was a very good soup recipe. I added 2 cloves of garlic and skipped the parsley. We topped ours with sour cream, potato sticks and a drop of hot sauce. It was very easy to make and would be wonderful in the winter with a salad and a loaf of hot bread."
"This was a great recipe. I have been looking for a good potato soup recipe for a while know and this one was really good. My fiance loved it too. I'm sure that I will be making it alot. I'm not a fan of celery so I excluded that and I also used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. This is a wonderful recipe."
"This is a wonderful recipe. I tried it because it resembled a favorite restaurant recipe. The whole family loved it, even the kids. I did substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth and brick cheese for the swiss. I am sure that either cheese will be delicious. I will make this again & again."
