Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a long time family favorite, I make this quite often in the fall and winter season, if desired you could add some cooked crumbled bacon, this recipe can easily be doubled.

This soup was wonderful! My kids loved it. I used 1/2 medium cheddar cheese and 1/2 sharp cheddar cheese. I also used more potatoes. I will be making this again soon. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
