i forgot to add the flour and dry mustard, and chose not to add cheese and sour cream. instead, i ran a hand blender thru the cooked soup, and served with a variety of shredded cheeses so everyone could pick the kind they wanted. i had asiago in mine, and it was very good.


Added some leftover Thanksgiving turkey and it was a meal! So delicious, reminded me of chicken/turkey divan, but in soup form!


The reduced-fat cheese was stringy and clumped up after adding to the soup. Soup would be better just adding some cheese on top. Won't be making again.


My daughter and I made this and is smelled so good we couldn't wait until it was done. I used low sodium chicken broth, twice the amount of garlic and cayenne. FABULOUS!!!


Easy to make, colorful, tastes great. Can't wait to have leftovers.
