    I loved this! It was kind of like eating mashed potatoes in soup form - in a good way. I really enjoyed the simplicity of it. I've tried all of those loaded-baked-potato type of soups and, while some were very good, I prefer this one. It's also very inexpensive to make - a nice bonus. Thanks for a great recipe!
