"I agree this is a very rich and delicious soup. Not too good for my cholesterol, however. I added celery, granulated garlic, some creamed corn."

"Everybody loved this soup. I used Mexican blend instead of cheddar because that is what I already had in the fridge. I will definitely make this soup again."
