This recipe was based on the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives show. However, I'm not entirely happy with it. I think it would be easier to just make cheeseburgers. Season with salt and pepper as you like; however, Velveeta is incredibly salty and I would never salt any of this until after having a chance to taste it after the addition of the cheese. I put the half and half in when specified (with the Velveeta); however, the soup curdled. Not surprising considering most recipes call for things like that to be put in at the end, so I'm changing the recipe accordingly. Perhaps using full-fat half and half would solve the curdling problem also.
