After seeing this soup in the daily email, I was excited to try it. In the end, I didn't see what is special about it. It came out under seasoned and thin. After seasoning, and adding dry milk to thicken it, it was satisfactory. I did like that the carrots and celery sneak some veggies in for nutritional value. For the high calories and fat content, I do not think it was indulgent enough. I would not make this recipe again, but I'm not sad I tried it. For fewer calories, a hearty chili would be much more satisfying. For cheesy, creamy indulgence, I'll go for a broccoli cheese soup before making this again.
Edit: I came back to edit my review. Two days later, after sitting in the fridge, I ate more as a leftover. The soup was A LOT better after sitting for awhile. The flavor profile developed more. I give this recipe 3 stars on the day it's prepared. I'd bump it to a 4, with more seasoning, thickening with dry milk, and sitting in the fridge for two days.
