"I love this soup! My kids like it pureed really smooth, but I tend to like it a little "lumpier." You can puree it as smooth as you like."

reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
( or use regular)
( or evaporated milk)

Lower heat medium.
Add in cream cheese and half and half; stir well. Add in salt, pepper, paprika and parsley; stir and heat through.
Add in shredded cheese; stir frequently until heated through and cheese is melted.
Remove from heat. Puree in batches in blender or food processor. Serve.
