"Good soup. Reminded me of beer cheese soup. Family loved."
"This is a wonderful soup recipe! I have made it multiple times over the years and it is always a big hit."
"Absolutely delicious. I didn't have enough chicken broth, which is unusual for my house, so I used beef broth instead and it was delicious. My son who usually complains if I put celery in anything ate 2 big bowls and didn't even notice (I diced it very small). Thank you for sharing!!!"
"Prepared with 1 lb. of grd. round. Used half & half instead of milk (thats what I had on hand) used real cheese and did not use the sour cream. Very creamy as is, and full of flavor. Perfect for the 3qt. saucepot."
"Modified to a slow cooker recipe and this was truly amazing. I will be making this again!!"
