Rarely do I review recipes, but I must rate this one. WOW. I love this soup! I have made it twice now for guests and have received rave reviews! I used part 1/2 and 1/2 and part milk (just what I had on hand). Otherwise followed recipe to a tee. I loved the little kick the cayenne provided. I garnished with popcorn. Fantastic! Thank you for the great recipe Nana!

Wonderful cheese soup! It was easy to make and had great flavor. I used a lager beer for this. For the cheese, I used 2 cups of sharp cheddar and 1 cup of muenster. I cut some fat by using fat free half and half for the milk. I garnished with chopped scallions. It was awesome. Thanx!
