    Mmmmm. I love these simple semi-homemade type recipes. Cheesy with a little spice. Took a while for my potatoes to get soft so I had to add a little extra water. Used about 3-4 inch block cut off the Velveeta.

    My family loves this soup! We add chicken strips or 1.5 cups of shredded chicken and make a meal out of it. In the step to add cheese, we also add sliced black olives with the chicken. We heat til cheese melts and then add in the milk. Mild Rotel tomatoes and chilies usually give it enough kick for me. For the adventurous, add a little hot sauce! Thanks for posting this favorite!

    This looks very good. I was going to try it until I read the nutrition information. One serving has more sodium than I consume in an entire day. Buying low sodium ingredients would help but I've never seen Ro-tel as a low sodium product, or the au gratin potatoes. But I think the recipe could be somewhat salvaged by using plain old potatoes, tomatoes with no added sodium, and green chilies, roasted, peeled and chopped and taco seasoning mix without sodium. I am going to make it and will garnish each serving with a spoonful of pico de gallo and sour cream.

    Absolutely fabulous and easy recipe. I made no changes to this recipe and it was perfect "as is". The ONLY change I made was to put out shredded cheese and sour cream as well as the crushed tortilla chips for the topping. In the fall and winter my family loves soup and this will be on the menu often as after work I love EASY, so this soup satisfies everyone.


Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
