"Wonderful soup for those cold, rainy or snowy days! My family absolutely loves this hearty soup. The warming zip of cayenne gives it a taste all its own. This is also excellent to reheat in the microwave for a fast meal."

This is so tasty. I too left the cayenne pepper and jalepenos out and it tasted just fine. I served this during a fall weekend with warm sourdough bread and have put it in a crockpot to watch...

This recipe is a standby - and works wonderfully even if you don't have all the exact ingredients. I have used Campbell's cheddar cheese soup in place of the Velveeta, have crumbled bacon on top...

This was a great starting point for a good CB soup. I omitted the potatoes. Ran the veggies through a food processor after they cooked down. Added more milk and some heavy cream. Used half Ameri...

This soup is delicious! I made a double batch so I could freeze some, but we ate it all (2 of us) before I had a chance to freeze any!

I took a little of the spice out for my family, but it was a fabulous option for a winter soup night!

This soup is great for a cold night! We made it for a family movie night. I used canned chopped green chiles in place of the peppers. I also added a can of corn, some pepper, and more garlic....
