I love the flavor of this soup! It's not a "pretty" soup, but what it lacks in beauty, it more than makes up for in flavor. I had this soup one day while travelling with friends. We stopped at a little Mom & Pop's cafe and this was the soup of the day. I loved it so much, I tried to recreate it at home. Hope you all like it! :)

    Gradually add the milk mixture to the soup, stir constantly. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Add cheese gradually, (I add about a handful at a time, stirring after each addition), until cheese is melted. Add sour cream and heat through, but DO NOT BOIL. Enjoy! :)
