My good friend, Donna Kimmel, gave me this recipe. Her family always has it on Christmas day. It's rich, thick and delicious! It's a wonderful comfort soup to have on a cold winter's day.

How to Make Kimmel Christmas Cheese Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt butter; sauté onions, celery and carrots until tender. Add broth; cover and simmer 45 minutes.
  2. Add potato soup, cheese, parsley, Tabasco, salt and pepper; bring to a low boil. Do not let it burn. (The cheese will stick to the bottom and burn--ruining the soup.)
  3. Add sour cream and simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Add sherry and stir. This serves 12-16 people.
  5. The soup can be kept warm in a crockpot during your celebration.
