    So I just made this for my family, and every single one of us sneaks back for more. My mom is mad because it is better than hers :) Only difference is mine is that it is sans celery. Thank you so much!

    I LOVE potato soup in whatever combination. yours - hmmm - creamy, rich, definitely something wonderful for winter. I have made one just two days ago but never thought of putting the cheese in. great idea! as i do not use canned soups, etc. (allergies), I have used fresh mushrooms (Pfifferlinge, don't ask me of its english name, please) and cream. I shall definitely make the next potato soup yours - using fresh champignons instead of the canned soup. I am already looking forward to this event.
    thank you for sharing!

    p.s: as I was in Barbados end of 2009, i still have some creole seassoning

    Made this last night and everyone loved it!! The creole seasoning adds a great flavour to this creamy soup...I am going to try omitting the velveeta and making a seafood chowder out of this recipe...Thank you for sharing a wonderful soup!
