I have made this recipe several times and it is always delicious. I made it tonight but didn't have white cheese slices so I used Pepperjack slices. It was even better!! That cheese gave it just a little bit of heat and it tasted amazing.

I made this recipe and used some shredded pepper jack. It had a wonderful taste, but the pot, spoon ,bowels were all suck with the cheese....too clumpy!! It seemed to melt initially and then as it began to cool while eating , it was like eating chicken with cheese . Any suggestions?

Hi Terri, when using natural cheese, such as shredded pepper jack, it will not melt the same way as our Deli American. Using Deli American helps the soup stay cheesy and creamy (and not lumpy). Hope this helps!
