"This thick and chunky soup is a great meal on a cold winter night! The ranch just gives it that little extra zing that is hard to put your finger on."

I have noticed a number of complaints that this recipe is too salty. Please note that the recipe calls for LOW SODIUM CHICKEN BROTH. As long as you follow the recipe and do not add salt before tasting, you should not have any problems with salt content.
TOO SALTY! whoops, forgot to use low sodium broth... next time would be a must; otherwise a decent chowder recipe.
My husband and I made this recipe the other night, and it turned out delicious! It tastes almost like a loaded baked potato. I recommend putting this in bread bowls as a fancy twist. The only thing I would recommend to change is maybe decreasing the amount of sour cream just a little because it has a bit of a bite to it. Otherwise, we'll definitely make it again.
This was my first attempt at Potato Soup...my husband and I loved it. I took the advice of one of the other reviewers and cut the sour cream in half because hubby doesn't care for it but other than that followed the recipe exactly. We will be making this again on cold winter nights. Thank you.
This was sooooooooo good! I used milk instead of half & half in an effort to save some calories. I also sauteed some garlic with the onion and celery. Was really delicious!
I adapted this so I could make it in my crockpot. I cut up the potatoes and threw them in the crockpot with the chicken broth, a bunch of pepper and a can of evaporated milk. I cooked them on HIGH until an hour before dinner. I mashed them slightly with my potato masher. I did use a whole package of hickory smoked bacon, cooking to crisp. When the bacon was done and out of the hot pan, I fried the veggies in the bacon grease. I didn't have celery but I did have one red pepper and one yellow that I added to onion with a little garlic. After I stirred in the bacon, veggies and cheese, I let it warm through on LOW, then turned off the crockpot so I could stir in the sour cream. Great tasting soup, I was quite surprized though it was a little salty. Great with homemade bread on a rainy night. NOTE: I did not need any flour in my soup at all.
great recipe. I kinda overcooked my potatoes waiting for my hubby to come home, but I know now. Very tasty. I wouldn't mind adding a bit more stalks of celery to it.
This soup was delicious! Everyone went back for seconds and we almost finished off the whole pot.
