Was kinda bland. Very good once couple small changes made. I used half- half and half and half heavy whipping cream for a slightly thicker and creamier consistancy also you HAVE to salt (a good amt) and pepper to taste. Read More

This is pretty good! I don't know why some people said this soup was too thin. The amount of cornstarch was perfect. Like with all recipes salt and pepper should be added so I think with that addition it amped up the taste. Very good! Will be making this again. Edit: fiancé really wasn't feeling it. He thought it was good but thought the combination of cheese and beer as a soup was strange. Read More

I used flour instead of cornstarch because if you use cornstarch the soup will become watery if you reheat the soup. The soup was very good. Read More
