The soup was very good. I would definitely make it again but I would add mushrooms and shredded carrots to give the soup extra flavor

OK, but probably but me making this recipe again is probably not likely.

This is a basis for a good soup. As written, it isn't. If you caramelize the onions, then add sliced mushrooms before continuing with the directions, it will up the flavor a lot. To make it even creamier (and if you aren't on a diet) use half milk and part 1/2 & 1/2. Also does need salt.

Quick AND delicious, I couldn't ask for more! I used fresh grated Colby-Jack, threw in two medium potatoes that I had precooked and chopped, and replaced 2 cups of milk with 2 cups of chicken broth. I will DEFINITELY make this again, hands down!

this is your basic cheese soup. very good. i cook the onions down to just caramelized and add 3 cups of chicken broth or stock and 1 cup milk. also sharp cheddar gives it more punch. and a couple dashes tabasco. very tasty

REALLY good. REALLY easy. And tastes even better after I froze the leftovers for a few weeks. This is really really good!
