I loved this soup, but my only concern was that it was very salty. I think omitting the boullion would reduce the sodium content without compromising the flavor. I also used light "Velveeta" and reduced fat cream of chicken soup to lower the fat content. Very good on a cold day!!!
I thought this was okay. Maybe a little too cheesy for my taste. Then I grabbed some leftover Christmas turkey and threw that in...it made a world of difference! So much better!
Easy after work recipe that you can just throw together. I sometimes use just regular water in place of chicken broth and throw in cut up smoked sausage. Both the sausage and broth would make the soup too salty-especially with the Velveeta cheese.
I made this to put into the Italian Bread Bowl recipe. This soup was really, really good. Even the super picky 8-year old wanted seconds. I did make some changes, replaced one of the chicken bouillon’s with a beef bouillon cube, a few dashes of mustard powder and a teaspoon of minced garlic.
Delicious soup. Very easy to make. I have never been very good at making soups or gravies. I looked it over, had all of the ingredients and decided to give it a go. Since my wife loves soup, even if it wasn't all that good it would still get eaten. Everybody loved it! This one will go in the comfort food file and be cooked often. Thank you Jackie for such a great recipe.
I made this soup again (a week later). Today I did everything as per the directions except I used a head of fresh cauliflower from the farmers vegetable stand. Once again, "souperb". Did not have to add any seasonings or even salt. Thank you Jackie for a perfect creamy cheese based soup that I can do just about anything to without worry of ruining it.
I make a soup that tastes very similar to this but my dh always complains it's too thin--he likes a very thick soup. This was Perfect. Both of us liked it so much better than the recipe I have. It's thick, creamy, chunky.....YUM. I didn't have any mixed veggies so I just added whatever leftovers I had in the fridge (some corn and carrots) along with the broccoli. I can't express how yummy this was. My two little ones loved it. My youngest kept stealing spoonsful while the cheese was still melting. Great Recipe.
Yum - think cheesy vegetable soup. Very good and very easy. I used a low sodium chicken broth instead of boullion and it wasn't too salty at all. I might add just 1/2 the celery next time. This was really, really tasty though!
I thought this was very good. I agree it was slightly salty, but I definetly would make it again.
