    Very good and filling. However, I wanted to point out that the calories per serving are off by 40. This recipe was calculated with cottage cheese and not shredded cheese like the recipe says. It is actually 200 calories per serving not 156. Still low cal but just a little more. FYI - 2/8/11

    What do you do with the 8oz of cheese? - 1/15/09

    Reply from DONNARR (1/15/09)
    Sorry, add cheese to the soup as the last ingredient after the milk and flour mixture.

  • I started with a ham bone, so no chicken broth or bacon. Realized I only had 1/2 cup of milk left, so not exactly the same recipe. Overall, it tasked great and everyone had seconds. - 6/23/11

  • I really like this soup! I did not use bacon as my boyfriend does not eat pork, but it turned out much better than expected. I did however add a little red crushed pepper to give it a little kick! - 6/18/10

  • Delicious! I used chicken boullion since I didn't have broth on hand, and used Colby and Monterey Jack cheese instead of Cheddar. Yummy! Even my 13 year old son loved it! - 2/14/10

  • Loved it! I used low sodium bacon and low sodium chicken broth, with no carrots and red pepper instead of chilis. It was great, will definitely make it again! - 10/8/09

  • I made this soup several times and it wonderful. I skipped the bacon each time. However the sodium content is pretty high ~ not good for someone trying to stick to a low-sodium diet!
    Thanks ~ it was yummy! - 4/3/09

  • I skipped the bacon, used a touch of dried red pepper instead of the chiles, and, as others have mentioned, used fresh garlic. I also used 4 0z sharp chedder, and added a couple tablepoons of dried parsley to get some green in there. Really tasty - will make it again! - 3/13/09

  • Silly question. So do I cook it for 25 minutes then add the milk/flour mixture and cook 12 more minutes? Or just 25 total?

  • I made it with 1% milk. I might improvise for the next time - maybe add some ham :-) Also, I didn't use the garlic salt, I used fresh garlic. Excellent! - 2/8/09
