This was a very good soup that came together easily after all of the initial chopping. At first, it seemed to be missing something, so I added quite a bit more salt and pepper. Perhaps that is just a matter of personal taste, though. Sometimes soups with cheese can end up with a somewhat "gloppy" consistency, but that was not the case here. This soup was creamy and delicious and offered plenty of warm comfort on a chilly day. I also appreciated that the recipe is so economical--one can make a large pot with very inexpensive ingredients. This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thank you so much for sharing.
