    I'm sorry, but just a quick note, 1 cup equals 8 oz. so the part about 1 cup of cheese equals 4 oz. is confusing. Which one is it so that the recipe is correct? - 5/14/08

    I hadn't made this soup in quite some time. You are absolutely right and the recipe should call for 1/2 C. of shredded cheese.
    Also, I suggest adding a little more water if it is too thick...I found I needed to do this tonight..still love this recipe! Good thick soup.
