I found this on the TOH site and it has quickly become a favorite of my family's. Add a salad and a warm loaf of sourdough and it's perfect comfort food! I generally make the roux and then throw everything in my crockpot to simmer for a couple of hours. I use a cup of the buffalo sauce and 8 oz of Velvetta and it turns out just right for us.
This quick and easy recipe is so much better than the canned stuff. Great as a first course, or with salad or sandwiches. Of course, you can use it in your favorite recipes, too. To make it thicker, use less stock and/or use heavy cream instead of the half-and-half cream or milk.
This is from the Tillamook Cheese Factory - some of the best cheese in the world!!!!! Of course I'm biased cause they're in my home state :-) This is my fave beer cheese soup -- you can use other cheese, just make sure it's extra sharp!
This recipe is from the days that Paula Deen started "The Bag Lady", where her sons would go out and sell their mother's meals. The recipe is courtesy of Paula Deen, 2003 Television Food Network. She was very overwhelmed when she cooked this soup and it looked very good! Hope to be trying it very soon. 05/08/07 Update . .DELICIOUS, did
change a few things around - first added carrots and celery to the stock, as well as dill (it really makes the soup even better.)
