    I cut this soup recipe in half and added the same amount of smoked paprika. I think next time I would add closer to one full teaspoon because we could barely detect the smoked paprika in the soup. I also used whole milk and a little bit of full fat half and half. The salt was omitted because the cheese (which was extra sharp Tillamook) is already salted. White pepper instead of black. A very good soup recipe and one I plan to make often. Thanks! cg
