This one's a winner! It is very easy to make, and the flavor is just delicious. Since I'm a blue cheese fiend, I think I would add more blue cheese next time. Don't miss this recipe if you like good soup.
Made a simple slurry to thicken it at the end. Turned out perfect. Also added a dash of paprika for a little heat.
