I'm surprised that so many people have had a hard time preparing this soup. It's really a very basic soup recipe. This recipe is a great simple soup that is delicious and yet elegant enough to serve for dinner parties. Serve as written for a soup course, but for a family supper I recommend adding a cup of shredded chicken and about three cups vegetables (I loved it when I added a bag of California blend (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots)). Thanks for the recipe!
My boyfriend called this 'melted cheese mess'. It was terrible and oily, and we ended up throwing out the entire pot in the end. Don't think I will be making this again.
Great soup! The only change was I used dried, minced onion, about 2 tablespoons worth. My soup wasn't as creamy as I would like, so next time I would probably use 1.5 cups of milk instead of 2 cups. This soup is perfect on a cold, windy Chicago day. Thanks Austin!
I loved this recipe. I didn't have chicken broth, so I used water and chicken flavor packet from Ramen. I added a 3 cups of milk instead of two and added the cheese while the heat was still on low. I also used Primo Taglio jack cheese slices, cut up. It was great, no goopy mess, just creamy soup. My boyfriend loved it as well and I will definitely make it again.
I wanted to like this soup but didn't. I didn't like the flavor, it was too thick and the texture was grainy. For anyone else making it, heat the milk and broth before adding to the flour mixture. Then add it slowly and stir constantly. This should help the consistency. Just be careful not to boil the milk. I won't make this soup again.
it was good, mine turned out with a weird texture
Husband thought that this would be fantastic with the addition of some potatoes or other veggies. But good just as written. Thanks!!
of course I modified soup like others have by adding leftover cooked vegies: potatoes, carrots, broccoli and added a fresh jalapeño instead of the hot pepper sauce. The chunkier soup was more satisfying!
