Cheese and Pepper Soup


Every time we have a church fellowship supper, people ask me to bring this soup.  I don’t mind making it over and over – it’s so easy to prepare!  I also like serving this spicy Southwest soup when Northern friends visit-and fixing it for my husband and our two children all the year through.
