Awesome soup, but with a few modifications: substitute cream for milk, 4 cups of chicken broth for water, and add one can of cream of mushroom soup. Also add kosher salt and lots of pepper, and onion powder and garlic powder. I added chopped celery and leeks as well, and omitted the peas. Definitely be sure to simmer this soup for a while so that the potatoes can get mealy- this thickens the soup nicely. My whole family loved this soup and went back for seconds!

This recipe was good but there wasn't much flavor. I added cheddar cheese right before I ate it and it added A LOT more flavor. I had to cook my potatoes about 30 mins more than the recipe said. Good if you don't have many ingredients but defiantly not the best.

This soup was easy to make and truly delicious. U can vary the thickness of the soup by controlling the amount of water and milk. It was very soothing and satisfying. A must make!

This is a good basic recipe that can be tweaked according to personal preference. I personally used fresh baby carrots and frozen peas. I also added a splash of heavy cream to make it richer and thicker. The soup turned out rich, hearty, and perfect for this cold snowy day. Thanks!

Oh this was a great recipe!! My son picked it out and what a hit! We added more vegetables and used chicken broth instead of water and it was yummy! Will do this again. Sending it to my other son away at college. Easy enough and inexpensive enough to make on his budget.

I love preparing soup from scratch. This is by far the very best basic recipe I've ever made! If I could give it 10 stars, I would. I boiled 2 whole chickens then picked it from the bone, I added a bag of mixed frozen vegies (not canned), 1 can cream of chicken soup & 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. My clients loved it & my family said, "This is GREAT!" This is definately a keeper.

A very good quick, easy, and very hearty stew. Perfect if you're in a hurry. I added a little bit of chipostle salsa on top to give it a little bit of extra smoky flavor and spice.
