Slow-Cooked Savory Cheese Soup
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours
Pretty good once I made a few adjustments. The flour/water mix didnt really thicken up the soup like recipe said it would but im cool with a watery soup, just add some crackers and youre good to go. As far as the taste goes, I can see why people would say it was bland if they only used mild cheddar. I used 3/4 cup mild, 3/4 cup sharp cheddar and then i threw in 4 slices of white american. TOTALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE. So good!! I think this will be my new favorite recipe!
A simple and versatile recipe. I made it without the beer as I was making it for a crowd, but overall, I thought it was tasty. I would agree with the previous comments about the cream cheese not melting. On the bright side, I did cube the cream cheese up in small enough pieces that I could "smash" them without making too much of a mess. Those pieces that weren't completely smashed were small enough that no one complained.
Worst crock pot recipe I've ever made! After 7 hours of cooking (first 5 just to wilt vegetables?), my family is starving and I had to throw it in a pot on the stove to get the cream cheese to melt. Absolutely ridiculous--and to make matters worse, it was just average at best. Totally frustrating and disappointing...
Worst recipe ever. First of all I have no idea why it needs to cook for 7-8 hrs first. Then when you finally get around to adding the cream cheese it takes FOREVER for it to melt. I won't be making this again even if by some miracle it tastes good.
Added a dash of cayenne pepper for a little zip. Still a little bland but overall a good soup.
This has become a regular in our slow-cooker. I use sharp cheddar for extra flavor, and I chop the veggies very fine and leave out the beer for my finicky eaters. The kids like it with gold fish crackers, hubby likes his with bacon pieces and I have mine with broken-up pretzels. A winner all-around!
My whole family loves it- it is perfect as is. Tastes even better the second day.

Not bad, but I found it too salty. I even used reduced sodium chicken broth to make it.
This was good, and you can do a lot with it - add mushrooms, broccolli, etc. We got tired eating the soup - added paprika and cayenne pepper and had a cheese dip (i'd reduce it more if I were to use it for that again). Very good, very versatile.
