This soup is Delicious & very easy to make. I had everything on hand, didn't use the butter just sprayed the soup pot with EVOO & sauted the onion & garlic,used homemade chicken stock & chicken that I had cooked & frozen. I used a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes the green chiles added a nice flavor so we didn't need the hot sauce. The grated cheddar cheese was a good addition to the soup. Vivian, I will be making this often as we loved it!
