Review This Recipe
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
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.
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.
Wonderful Flavor and Easy to Make
I made this for my family tonight. It was a HUGE hit. Every last bite was gone. I barely had to wash the pot.
I added some sour cream as an additional topping.
WHOLE FAMILY'S SOUP
EVERYONE IN FAMILY LOVED THE SOUP, BOYS, MEN, GIRLS AND THE WOMEN LOVED THE FAST AND EASY SOUP.
This the best on cold days,you have to try it.
All Star Bacon & Corn Chowder
This looked so much like something my Mom used to make, I had to try it! Fast and easy, and perfect on a cold & wet evening! My family thoroughly enjoyed it, and said it's a keeper!
Fast and Fabulous
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!

Quick & Easy
Very good and easy to make.
this is excellent,my favorite.
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.
I added leftover ham and tomates and grated cheddar. My family ate it so fast. It's perfect for this cold wet weather here in Texas.
this soup was excellent with the bacon flavor in it! yummo!

Quick & Easy!
This was so easy to make & so good! I loved how quickly it was to put together items that I already had on hand to make a delicious meal. I plan to serve this on a regular basis. Thank you!
Great soup on a cold winter day!
I made the recipe and added both frozen green peas and grated carrots - my family thought it was great! Added color too.
Warm & hearty!
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.
All-Star Potato, Bacon and Corn Chowder
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.
Quick & Easy
This recipe was quick, easy & very satisfying.
This was great!! We like a little bite to it so I added 1 can of diced potatoes. Definite keeper.
Thought it was a little to thick, so I added some extra chicken broth to thin it out. It was super good.
