The Best Christmas Soup- Cheese Soup!


This soup sounds funky- Cheese Soup- but trust me, it is amazing! Our family always has it at Christmas so I thought I would share the recipe with you. It truly is the most delightful soup ever! Merry Christmas! 
OH, P.S. If your Trader Joes has the Cranberry Walnut Braid (in the bread section) buy it by the bulk for Christmas- it is so delicious! 

Cheese Soup:
1/4 cup butter (melt in large dutch oven or pan of choice)
2 green onion
3 stalks of celery
2 carrots 
Sauté until Soft (I add a lot more veggies than this and often add potatoes)
2 cans chicken broth (simmer for 30 minutes)
"Dump" the rest: 
3 cans cream of potato soup
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
few drops of tobasco
Course ground black pepper (just shake it to lightly cover top and stir)
8 oz sour cream
**(careful that the veggies don't burn to the bottom of the pan- low and slow is the trick, I put it on low for as many hours as I have at least 2-3)

NOTE: I usually triple this recipe for groups of 6 or more- I say at least double it, leftovers are a must! Also, Dave has to have flaky biscuits with this- they really are a must!
