What a great soup! I added a little crushed garlic, but other than that followed the recipe as printed. I think the cream cheese adds a nice flavor, but not a sharp cheddary flavor. I even used low fat (not fat free) cream cheese! Really nice soup. I'm sure you could add more herbs such as chives, but I didn't do it.
