Hi again, I hope someone can help me? I posted this yesterday and does ANYONE have the answer to my question, please? Thank you!....

Just joined and hope this reaches AngID. For the Chili's Baked Potato Soup, Do I MAKE THE ...INSTANT.....MASHED POTATOES first and then add to the recipe, OR should I put the instant mashed potato POWDER in the soup? I can't figure out which to do. THANKS!! Also, should I put Cheese IN the soup AND on top for garnish OR just garnish with no cheese IN the soup? THANKS. I can't wait to make this. Chili's is the BEST ever for that soup. mickeyc
