great recipe! I think i'll try roasting the peppers next time; since there will be a next time with this soup! thank you!!
2 packed cups of shredded cheese = .63lb block.
This soup is hearty and tastes great. I used Vidalia onions and did not alter any of the other ingredients. Using an immersion blender is an easier, and less messy, way to chop the mixture up.
I changed the amount of ingredients slightly. I used 8 oz of heavy cream and a half teaspoon of pepper. I didn't have a blender so I used a hand mixer. I also used 2 well drained jars of roasted red peppers. My 1st time and it was awesome.
I used roasted red peppers and smoked Gouda cheese. My soup had a somewhat bitter taste so these choices may not have been wise.
Really great soup! It's something I wouldn't have thought to do with red bell peppers until I saw this recipe. The Gouda cheese is a wonderful match. I'd like to try smoked Gouda as well. I made this exactly as written. Thanx for posting!
This is delicious, my fiance and I both loved it and I can't wait to make it again.
