Susan's Fabulous Cheese Soup

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Emily

This is a really great cheese soup, the carrots are perfect with the cheese. My step-mother makes this for a crowd and there is never any leftovers! Use a can of chicken broth or make your own stock. Works great with turkey stock after thanksgiving too. You can even substitute a vegi broth if you are vegetarian.

"Fabulous" might be a bit exaggerated, but it certainly is not bad. Use a low salt stock, or it will turn out unbearably salty (because of the salt in the cheese).
