      Awesome cheese soup! It's pretty easy and inexpensive to make, too. I opted for sharp cheddar and I thought it was perfect. I used fat free half and half but it was still rich in texture. I served this to my kiddos with goldfish crackers and parsley on top. Thanx for a great cheese soup recipe!

      This was wonderful ~ very cheesey with a little kick to it! We try to have soup at elast once a week and have gotten out of the habit and I'm glad I picked this recipe to start back up with. I made the recipe exactly as posted and I wouldn't change a thing. I didn't have the cheese clumping problem. I served with cornbread and sliced fresh garden tomatoes ~ heavenly! Thanks for posting a keeper!

      Excellent soup. I made this for my kids last night and they both loved it. I made as directed, not changing a thing, using mild cheddar. I did have a problem with the cheese clumping together while we were eating it, as it got cool. I have had this problem with other soups I have made that have a cheese base. Still didn't alter the great taste of this soup. Had with sour dough bread.
