    This was delicious served with the Tuna Swiss Melts from the same issue. The only change I made was to use 4 oz of Velveeta.

    My family absolutely loves, loves, loves this recipe and asks me to make it all the time. It is super simple and relatively quick to make. I would recommend this to all ages

    I thouroughly loved this recipe. I made it for a dinner party and everybody enjoyed it. I was even asked for the recipe. The only thing I would change would be that it needs more veggies. But it's easy and delish, with less cheese than some would have you add.

    This is one of my favorite soups ever. I've made it several times. I like doing a combination of Velveeta cheese for creaminess and cheddar cheese for flavor. I've also added broccoli to the soup, and it makes an excellent broccoli cheese soup. I'm always asked for the recipe. It's really delicious and my family and I love dipping bread/rolls into the soup. Highly recommend
