    Delicious!

    Heather Polson from HIGH RIDGE, MO

    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

    Very easy to prepare. I cut this in half for just my husband and I and we devoured it. My husband wants a little more spice next time, and I probably won't cut it in half. :)
