    DELICIOUS!

    MELISSA CUMMINGS from Pineville, LA

    I MADE THIS SOUP FOR MY BOYFRIEND AND MYSELF AND WE LOVED IT! I ADDED 2 DICED POTATOES TO MAKE IT CHUNKIER AND LEFT OUT 1/2 CUP OF THE FLAKES. TASTE JUST LIKE THE BAKED POTATO SOUPS IN THE RESTURANTS AND IS SUPER EASY TO MAKE.

    quick soup wins points

    claire-anne aikman from indianapolis, IN

    Well, this soup won points for quick making - ultimately it was a little grainier than I like - it was gobbled up nonetheless bcz the flavors were simple and pot on.

    flavored potatoes

    Jean Cheney from Mesquite, TX

    Since potato flakes now come in a variety of flavors this may be a great way to change your soup by changing the flavor of the potato flakes you use.

    Fast and Fabulous

    mona lynn hahn from EVANSTON, IL

    We are big potato soup fans in my house. I already have three recipes I use regularly. But, sometimes I just don't have fresh potatoes in the house, while I always keep potato flakes on hand. So, this recipe solves the problem and is great-tasting to boot!

    soup

    Darlene Crews from Boonville, NC

    This is an excellent snowy day recipe. We have had more snow in the foothills of North Carolina this year than we have had in the past 10 years. There has been a lot of days that I couldn't get to work so I cook healthy, hardy soups to warm the body and soul. We very much enjoyed this combination and the leftovers were even better.

    Warm & hearty!

    terri dueboay from Cleburne, TX

    This recipe was the perfect compliment to a rainy cold that with sleet and ice in the forecast. It was warm and hearty, filling my tastebuds with pleasure. The combination of flavors was perfect for taste and aroma adding to the cozy comfort of this dish. I will deifintely make this chowder again. The recipe was easy to follow using ingredients already on hand in most kitchens. The measurements were right on. What I like about this recipe the most is the ability to make the chowder easliy without spending all day in the kitchen. I also like the ability to add optional ingredients easily if I chose to this chowder to suit my families taste. The only thing this recipe needs is a big pan of cornbread and butter to go along with it.

    This recipe is definitely a keeper - so quick and easy to make. I doubled the quantity, added green onions, green peas and my family devoured it. So good on a cold winter day when California was getting too much rain. I will seve it often. Thank you.

    This is a very easy soup to make. I didn't have onion powder so I put in some carmelized onions and it was delicious. I will be making this again.

    Thought it was a little to thick, so I added some extra chicken broth to thin it out. It was super good.
