Top Review by Cilantro in Canada

My 13 year old son loves this soup and I have made it a number of times, I did make a few changes as we are trying to cut down on our fat content in foods. I only used 1 1/2 cups of cheese, I substituted evaporated milk for the cream and used skim milk for the full fat milk. I also left out the corn and green onions. We loved this soup and have found that a single batch does not last long enough so now I make a double batch. If you like your soup spicy you may want to add extra jalapeno peppers. Thanks for the recipe.
