The potatos were so cheesy and gripped onto the seasoning perfectly.

Not sure what to say about this soup other than it's very flavorful but had to give it 5 stars no matter what.

Me and my husband really liked this cheddar jack soup, it was good.

Wasn't a fan of leek so I didn't add any but the soup itself was perfect.

Novalee Alain

HEAVENLY! This is so tasty when warm and very filling i'd totally recommend it for anyone second guessing.

Aiyanna Nau

I used himalan salt instead of kosher, wayyy better.

Ariadne Faulknor

Wasn't sure how I'd feel about cheesy soup since I like mine with a lot of meat but this was good.

Laniyah Dupras

I'm normally not a huge fan of cheese or soup but the two together is BOMB!

Dalia Dailey

Can't get enough of this soup it was honestly so flavorful and delish.

Belle Rudig

The cheese tasted kinda burnt so i ended up remaking mine and it was okay after, just a difficult recipe to perfect :(

Briar Dibitetto

I'd recommend adding a bit more salt than just a pinch or two since the cheese really doesn't take to grabbing it.


I love it! Yummy-yummy!
