  2. Working in batches, blend the soup in a blender until smooth.

  3. Return the soup to the saucepan and cook over medium heat until just boiling. Remove from the heat and whisk in cheese until melted.


If cheese does not melt completely, cook over very low heat for about 1 minute, stirring constantly.
