I make this recipe all the time, instead of using water, I use 4 cups of chicken broth. Lots of flavor!!

i only gave 4 stars because i made some changes, but i'm sure if i'd followed it exactly it would have been great too! i cut the recipe in half for starters, but because of the runny comment, i only used about 3/4 of a qt and used vegetable broth instead of water. i also used cream of celery instead of cream of chicken, and i omitted the cheese because i didn't have any on hand. It came out Wonderful! it was exactly the creamy vegetable soup i was looking for! with the changes, a great vegetarian soup! thanks

I make this recipe ALL THE TIME! Perhaps the other reviewer added to much water, but it isn't too watery with 2 quarts of water. Just be careful when melting the Velvetta to stir often, or the cheese will stick and burn.

This was easy and good! It could be spiced up a little with some seasonings. I used 1/2 the water and about 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese instead of Velveeta. Also, but in 1/2 a bouillon cube.

I looked up this recipe because I lost the original my MIL gave me. My husband could not tell the difference :)

This was a great recipe. After reading other reviews, I halved the recipe and it still made a big pot. I also doubled the potatoes, used broth instead of water, added 1 cup of chopped carrots, and 2 cups of pulled, cooked chicken. I also added salt and pepper to taste. My husband and I thought it was really good. My 2 year old liked it, too. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting.

Very easy recipe I made a large batch and thought it called for too much water-I only used half. Everyone loved the soup will make again.
