I thought this was good, but not 5 star worthy. I ended up decreasing the amount of milk because it was too thin, I increased the amount of cheese to 16oz. because of its thinness again, and I had to add alot of cayenne, some white pepper and additional salt in order to give it more flavor. Still not satisfied, I cooked up 4 slices of bacon and crumbled it in the soup. Better, but not perfect yet!

A very good, easy-to-make soup. The garlic & chiles add a nice flavor. I used a small can of diced tomatoes, drained, but otherwise followed the recipe. I served with croissant sandwiches, and it made for a great cold-weather meal :) Thanks
