I'm always looking for something new and different to try for dinner and I came across this recipe by chance and decided to make it... I have little ones so I did have to modify it a bit. I substituted the onions with carrots, halved the ground pepper and used garlic salt for the other half, added some fresh herbs, had the hot pepper on the side, and grated a little sharp cheddar on the top before serving. So I guess you could say that I made potato soup with a thump and not a kick, but it was still wonderful! Even my two year old who's going through the mac 'n' cheese with hot dogs phase loved it, so thanks Ann for sharing the great recipe!

Okay soup. Could use more hot sauce. Also, I could add more potatoes.

My daughter and her friend made this one day because they were bored. Well, I am glad they did because I have made this soup over and over again. I changed the tomatoes to diced and added a 14 1/2 oz can of sauce. Everyone LOVES this recipe especially on a cold day!

I actually would give this 4 1/2 stars if I could. This was surprisingly tasty and very easy to make. I made some minor changes, namely sauteeing a finely chopped celery stalk and 2 cloves of garlic along with the onion, and using less hot sauce. My picky husband eyed this with great suspicion but then helped himself to seconds. Great with some fresh bread on a cold winter night and definitely a keeper.

Great!! I did add a little garlic and chili powder. Other than that, it was sooo good on a cold day

Very good! I'm a wimp and don't like spicy food so I let my husband put the hot sauce in his own bowl and we both loved it. It was so quick and easy to make, with ingredients I already had. Thank you Ann!

Great stew/soup! It's really more like a thick vegetable beef soup than a potato soup, but the taste is fantastic! I prepared it just as stated and mashed the potatoes a bit in the saucepan towards the end. The longer it cooks, the thicker it gets. Our house smells wonderful!

Surprisingly good considering the simple ingredients. I didn't have any hot sauce and so substituted 1/3 tsp cayenne pepper. Mashed some of the potatoes towards the end of cooking. Very comforting in cold weather!
