Delicious soup. Great texture; not too thin and not too thick. I used 1 lb of fresh (instead of frozen)broccoli and chopped it. Enjoyed by all! I'll make this again. Thanx for a great soup.

Great Recipe. I substituted jalapeno pepper jack cheese to give it some spice. My whole family LOVED IT!! Definitely a keeper!

Delicious! I used fresh broccoli as well. The only other change I made was to add Chipotle Jack cheese instead of cheddar for a bit of a spicy kick. My husband loved it. So did I. The flavors and saltiness were just right. I did bring the soup to a light boil after adding the milk, while stirring frequently, just to make sure it thickened and was smooth. I'll be making this again for sure!
