Notes

  • This nacho soup uses a boxed Au Gratin Potato Mix.  That's the secret ingredient to a quick and tasty nacho soup.  Be sure to use the potatoes and the seasoning packet.
  • Do not drain the canned tomatoes with green chilies (also known as Rotel).
  • Substitute frozen corn for canned if desired. If you do use canned, drain it first before adding to this nacho potato soup.
  • Like a spicy potato taco soup?  Add Hot Rotel (diced tomatoes with chilies) instead of mild.
  • To change it up, add in a combination of Mexican Velveeta and Original Velveeta.
  • Try adding ground beef or chicken for a whole new boxed au gratin potato soup recipe.
