My favorite soup recipe ever! My mom got this out of Country Woman magazine years ago, and I still beg her to make it for me now that I'm grown with two kids. It is simply delicious.

That was great. I cut out some fat by using skim milk and fat free half and half, but then I counter acted it by added extra cheese. Oh well, you only live once. This recipe was really easy and very yummy. I will definitely make this again. Reviewed for PAC 2009.
