Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



I tweaked a few things in the recipe, like switching the chicken broth for cream of potato, and putting carrots in the place of the peppers, but altogether the recipe was great and a hit with the potato-loving husband! Thanks

Cream soup with potatoes and cheese

I have made this a couple of times, it is very good and easy to make, although the second time, I did not add the tomatoes, instead I added diced ham and also a shredded carrot while cooking the potatoes.
