    This soup is so good. I use 1 cup of Velveeta and 1 cup of shredded cheese in this soup, and it still comes out great!

    In New Mexico, we add green chile to everything. It was really good in this recipe. Very good soup.

    What a delicious soup. I made this for supper tonight. It warmed our tummies. I followed the recipe exactly and it isperfection! My DH loved it (he loves all of NurseDi's recipes.though). I'm taking the rest for our lunch tomorrow.

    Yowzer. This soup is awesome. Very rich and we love Velveeta cheese. The sour cream also adds to the richness. A great soup to warm you up of a nasty, cold day. Very easy to make too. I served with some warm French bread and salad. Thanks Nurse Di.

    Yummy! My whole family loved this soup. It would be great also to use wild rice instead of potatoes next time.

    WOW! I think this stuff is awesome and very easy to make even with its 40 minute prep time, but worth it. I used 4 cooked ground beef patties left over from my daughters party. I used 2 cups beef broth and 1 cup chicken broth instead of 3 chicken. And I also used 1 cup Velveeta and 1 cup Cheddar cheese. Otherwise, I followed recipe to the 'T' and will definitely make again!

    This was easy to fix and I had ALMOST everything on hand. I ran out of velveeta so I subbed (mostly) sharp cheddar, this worked out nicely. I also had no celery in sight, but am sure that the addition of the celery would only make it better. I am not a fan of potatoes in soups, but went with it thinking okay cheeseburger and fries thinging. It worked out very well! I will fix this again adding garlic and possibly switch out the basil for thyme or cooked chicken for the ground beef. This soup reheats very well in the microwave. I will be fixing this again! Thank you for posting ratherbeswimmin.
