For a low fat soup this was pretty good. Instead of the cans of chicken broth I used 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 Tablespoon chicken bouillon. I also decreased the milk to 1 cup and increased the potato flakes to 1 cup. It obviously wasn't the same as a soup filled with fat but I liked it as a healthy alternative.

It had little taste and no thickness. It is good if you are trying to lose weight, but otherwise, don't bother.

This was GREAT! I added extra Garlic powder and skipped the milk, adding water instead. I also tossed in a little non-dairy creamer to replace the milk. IT WAS GREAT! Thanks for sharing!

Excellent.. doesn't taste low fat. I added some broc. to mine and a little more potato flakes to make it extra thick.

This was great, but I did change a few things b/c I didn't have potato flakes and I don't like celery or onions. I only used the potatoes and broth. After boiling I put in my vitamix and added the milk. I then added a SMALL handful of low fat cheese and a small handful of bacon bits. Very very good!!
