Reviews for Cheese/Pepper Soup
"I don't know what went wrong with this recipe...I completely followed the directions and was left with a giant bowl of flavorless queso! A horrible waste of ingredients and time. My husband is on his way to get a pizza! :("
"This is a great favorite in my family. I have added broccoli and that always goes over well, too."
