I made this for a potluck and got nothing but compliments. I didn't have pepper jack cheese on hand, so I just used cheddar and added a 4-oz can of diced green chilies to give it some kick, which seemed to work fine.
The family enjoyed this soup especially my DD. I didn't have monterey jack pepper cheese just plain ole monterey and used a homemade mix for the onion soup mix.
This is a lovely creamy and cheesy soup. I wasn't over the moon with the background taste of the onion soup mix. Next time I think I will use fresh onions and chicken broth. My husband thought it was great. I just used the wand blender and it worked great. Thanks for a very good recipe.
