This was so easy to prepare and had a wonderful flavor. The only thing I did different was I used white pepper and doubled the hot sauce. It made a good entree, but could certainly be a wonderful starter, good enough for guests! Thanks Chia for sharing!

I loved this recipe. Couldn't believe how easy it was to make (even for a novice like me). Made it for the wife along with some salad, with hot caramel apples for dessert. Best meal I've made in a long while that was this good and also healthy.

I used smoked gouda and also at least doubled the hot sauce. After tasting, I thought the soup still lacked something so added some chicken bouillon granules. I added some homemade croutons when serving. Very nice soup for a cold night. Thanks for sharing.
