Hearty Cheese Soup Recipe

Cathy Smith of Amarillo, Texas shares a stick-to-the-ribs family pleaser. “Chunky and cheesy, this rich creamy soup is simply wonderful during cold winter months,” she notes. TASTY TIP: If your family prefers a “Cheeseburger Soup” flavor, substitute lean ground beef for the ground turkey.
