Wisconsin Broccoli-Cheddar Cheese Soup

Outstanding! I was searching for a “cozy” soup and this Broccoli-Cheddar Cheese Soup is it. Creamy and easy and yummy! I think this will become my favorite blanket and PJ’s comfort food!

Broccoli-Cheddar Cheese Soup

The soup has just a little background kick/tingle from the cayenne…but wonderfully offset by the sharp cheddar…

Definitely I will make this again.
