This certainly is an ultra-basic recipe, but it's yummy and satisfying. Great for when you're craving a thick, creamy soup and want it quickly. I love that it uses all basic ingredients that I always have around. I did throw in a handful of cheddar cheese as mentioned in the intro. This was delicious; thanx!
