Haven't tried it yet, sounds AWSOME, there is a new Velveta Blanco that would make it stay creamy white. That's what I'm going to try.....I'm not very computor savy so IF I figure out how to make another comment on reviews I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks Rita

I have prepared this recipe any times. Every time it is delicious, but slightly different. Do not be concerned with the size of the potatoes or onions, or how much water to mix with the flour. I have added extra onion, or a little garlic, bacon and cheese make good additions too. You can not go wrong with this recipe!

how much water do you mix with the flour

how much water do you mix with the flour

I believe she is using the flour and water to create a slurry as you would when you make gravy. Just put the flour in a small bowl and add water to it a little at a time to create a lump-free liquid paste. Make sure that you are stirring that soup as you add the slurry or it may create lumps just like when you make gravy. I never measure that water required - just use your faucet and a trickling stream and then you can control how much you need for the consistency. Should be very loose and smooth.

Adding the cheese is meant as an alternative to the plain potato soup recipe shown. Cheese makes it an entirely different soup.

??? What cheese soup??? It's never mentioned until the "Note"!!! I really wish people would read these recipes BEFORE they print them!!!

how much water do you add to the flour for the potato soup?.....also what size onions?...thank you
