Great recipe! I followed another suggestion and reduced the amount of water to 7 cups. In addition, I added 6 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled, to the soup when I added the sliced Velveeta. I'll be making this soup again!

Didn't really care for this at our house. It taste more like potato soup than cheese soup and I won't make again.

Followed this one exactly and my only complaint is that the Velveeta never completely melted but by the time it did enough to eat, the potatos were overdone. Next time I would add more potatos so that it will be a bit more chunky. Second bowl in I added some cumin and liked it even better. Paprika, chives, and crutons for garnish. Thanks!

OOOh so very good! Really this should be titled as a potato cheese soup - but whatever it is, it's wonderful, quick and easy to make. Using red potatoes, I have made this exactly as the recipe suggested with a just bit of sharp cheddar on top and another time, added venison sausage - both times were great. This does not have the "canned" taste I was expecting. I like to mash the potato cubes just enough to "roughen" them up - the addition of the soup and cheese give plenty of creaminess without having to mash up the potatoes too much. Thanks so much to the contributor! On to my second helping....

I made 1/2 recipe of this to try it out, and I am glad I did! This was very boring tasting. I thought it was strange to go through the work of making homemade potato soup and then adding a can of soup. The canned soup dominated the flavor and it ended up tasting like "canned cheese potato soup!"
