This is a very good cheese soup recipe. I used a jar of CheezWis ConQueso and the spice added a lot of zip to the soup. I also substituted chicken broth for the wine (I don't usually like the wine taste in foods). My son loved it with some bacon bits and croutons on the top. I'll definitely make this again.
