Questions & Replies

  1. How much water is needed for this recipe?


  1. I made this for a potluck and got nothing but compliments. I didn't have pepper jack cheese on hand, so I just used cheddar and added a 4-oz can of diced green chilies to give it some kick, which seemed to work fine.
  2. The family enjoyed this soup especially my DD. I didn't have monterey jack pepper cheese just plain ole monterey and used a homemade mix for the onion soup mix.
  3. This is a lovely creamy and cheesy soup. I wasn't over the moon with the background taste of the onion soup mix. Next time I think I will use fresh onions and chicken broth. My husband thought it was great. I just used the wand blender and it worked great. Thanks for a very good recipe.
  4. This is yummy! I used half an envelope of onion soup mix & a bouillon cube to start. Also added some chopped carrot. I used the wand blender which worked great. Had Habanero Jack cheese to go with the cheddar.
  5. Very nice soup - DH especially loved it. I made a few changes: chili powder instead of paprika (ran out) and mustard powder for the curry (made curry yesterday, didn't want a repeat of flavor). I added a chopped onion and a handful of chopped carrots. I also wasn't crazy about the onion soup mix-y taste, but on the whole this was a keeper! Oh, I used my handy-dandy wand blender too.


  1. This soup was delicious, easy, and quick to make. By pureeing the ingredients with my wand immersion blender I am able to disguise vegetables (cauliflower and onions) that my dear ones would otherwise refuse. The only change I made to this hearty, nutritious soup was to use smoked paprika instead of regular, and since the soup was such a hit, I will continue to make it with that variation. Thank you for submitting this recipe.
  2. I used frozen California Vegie mix (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots) and cheddar cheese instead of Velveeta. It was great! We ate every bit! Thank you
