Recipe by SuzyQ3266

This is a wonderful winter recipe. I got it from an old friend a few years ago, and I have made it every winter since then. Watch out, it's not very healthy.

Wow, this delicious soup is really rich! This would be great on a cold day. I used a Mexican cheese blend for the cheese. My only complaint is that its too thick.......I like my soups with more liquid. Reviewed for Spring PAC 2012.
