    Susie in Texas's Note:

    One of my most requested "soup of the day" recipes from when I was in the food business. Swiss cheese gives this soup the most delectable flavor.

      We really enjoyed this soup, Susie! Loved the combination of ingredients. Can't wait to make it again experimenting with other types of cheese. Your instructions are easy to follow. I added just a little bit more milk to thin it out a bit. Thanks you for sharing such a great soup recipe. :-)

      Hubby and I really liked this soup. I made it exactly how you said and added the extra cup of milk. Hubby added Tobasco but he likes everything spicy. We love thick soups and this was just prefect. I will definately be adding into my recipe rotation!!

      We really enjoyed your soup tonight. I pureed 3/4 of it in the food processor and added a pinch of ground mustard, cayenne, and garlic salt, as well as the recommened pepper. When I made the base I used fat free half and half for part of the milk called for in the recipe. Really thick, really filling, really good. I can see why it was such a hit at your food business.
