I have read about this soup somewhere along my recipe board travels and knew I had to make it! I ended up googling it and found a recipe from the Soup Kitchen on That's My Home website and I used it as my guideline making mine! This soup is delicious! My kids said it taste like a cheeseburger without the bun and I half agree with them! Once everything is added to the soup it thickens up more like a chili and is very filling! Comfort food I would say! A note from the website said, In this soup you want to use a processed cheese, It melts better and will result in a smoother and creamier soup and they are right as I used Velvetta as well! I would have to say that this soup is a jazzed up potato soup! This is my version of the soup and you can find the original recipe on the link I provided!
