    This was good but I think it needed a little more flavor. Next time instead of cheddar cheese soup I'm going to use a jar of salsa con queso.

    My family loved these sandwiches, I used sub rolls instead of the french bread

    We like this with nacho cheese soup instead of cheddar cheese soup.
