I love this soup. always make a double batch.
We usually make a double batch of this one. We use 1% milk and 2% Velveeta and it still turns out great. We add a little salt, peppercorn pepper and Cholula to give it a little more flavor. It freezes great!
I steamed my veggies so they didn't get too mushy. I don't like to boil all the goodness out of them. I love celery so used 2 cups of that as well. Absolutely fantastic soup.
Very rich. I put half of the cheese and it was still too rich, but my husband loved it.
I made this for a group of friends and they all raved about it saying it was some of the best they've had.
I did make a few changes. I added minced garlic to the sauteed onions and substituted some dry white wine for some of the chicken broth.
