Cheeseburger Potato Chowder

"Quick as a wink to make. You can vary the cheese to suit your taste and use fresh potatoes instead of hashbrowns if you prefer."

    I think this is a great recipe. I did add 2 cups of chicken stock and 2 cups of milk and half a cup of corn. It was super tasty and my kids enjoyed it.

    This was a really good soup! I love how fast it cooked up. I didn't have the Cubed potatoes so I did use the shredded ones, and really liked it. I am thinking about next time adding some corn and tomatoes. :) Thank you so much for sharing!

    Wow, this is so easy to make. I didn't expect it to taste as good as it does. It is delicious. It's such a great comforting soup to make on a cold day. I will definitely be making this one again and again.

    Tastes like you're eating a cheesebuger.....but with a spoon! This soup is a great kid-pleaser and it's so quick to make. I added a bit more potatoes, just because I wanted to finish the bag. I'd love to make this again and add a can of diced tomatoes. Tomatoes are great on cheeseburgers, right? Thanx for sharing this simple delicious soup.

    This soup is *quick as a wink* to make & I laughed as I recalled the *Real Men Do Not Eat Quiche* era. To a lrg extent, I think most men view soup the same way - something you eat when real food is not on the table. If they do, then they clearly have not had this hearty soup that will satisfy the most militant meat & potato man + kids as well. It was so yummy & richly flavored. I made a full recipe, used cheddar cheese & made my own cubed potatoes (crisped a bit in a hot oven tossed w/a little olive oil). When the soup was ready (b4 the pepper), I tasted it & thot it could use a burst of flavor to balance the richness, so I added a generous amt of Montreal Steak Seasoning for the pepper, garlic & bite I was after. DH ate 2 bowls & prob would have eaten a 3rd if he was not in a hurry to get to a meeting. It is quick, tasty, ingredient friendly & a winner for us. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)

    I made this recipe, but yes I tweaked a few things. Instead of using four cups of milk, I used 2 cups of chicken stock and 2 cups of milk. I kept everything else the same but added in 1/2 a cup of corn. It turned out amazing.
