I am so glad you all are enjoying my recipe, but please do not complain if your soup doesn't turn out correctly b/c you used the wrong cheese... The proceesed cheese adds a creamy factor that cheddar doesn't have - please try the recipe (any recipe for that matter) first before you alter it... thanks!!

Very good soup! Per other reviewers, we added some extra potatoes and a dash of cayenne pepper. Although extra potatoes were added, I think I'll even add some more (use 3 cups) and maybe an extra 1/2 carrots and celery. We sprinkled some dried parsley overall! Looked and tasted great!! Thanks Janet!
