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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
