This is real comfort food. SO good on a cold day. We like to add a drop or two of red hot sauce.

Thought the soup was pretty bland. Made it again and instead of the water I used beer. Added a tsp of minced garlic to veges when sauteing and used sharp cheddar. Serve with popcorn and it was a great beer cheese soup.
