I made this tonight, it was great! I did make some adjustments, I boiled the veggies in chicken broth and did not drain, used light cream and used cheddar cheese and colby jack. Very flavorful!!

YUMMY! Perfect for a cold, windy, plummeting temperatures kind of day. Had to add a little more milk because it was so thick. Got rid of the nutritional facts when I printed this out to add to my "keepers" file (ignorance is bliss). We have a lot of winter on the way and I am sure this recipe is one I will come to again and again.
