  1. I LOVE this soup! I had it at the "soup party" a few years ago and fell in love.

  2. This is so funny that the soup has been such a hit through the years. I am not known for my cooking as I am for my it is a pleasure to let it go public.

  3. This is a Wallace favorite...but of course I was using the "uncorrected" recipe...using twice the velveeta! A little extra velveeta never hurt, right? Thanks Amy for a great soup recipe!!!
