We loved this soup. I didn't use the chicken soup and used vegetable broth instead of chicken. It was wonderful!!

This is what I've been looking for. I'm also from WI. and have been looking for the right recipe for awhile now. I will be making this soon. The only thing I would do different is add some cooked crumbled bacon to it! Yummy!

Wow! Wow! Wow! That is how I would describe this recipe!! It is super easy to make and absolutely delicious!! I could see this recipe easily doubled to feed a crowd and even used (with less chicken broth) as an easy fondue or cheese dip!! I will certainly make this again!!
