Cheesy Vegetable Soup is jam packed with tender vegetables in a creamy cheesy soup. This soup has amazing flavor and is so comforting in the winter!
The weather has been so weird here in Utah since we got back from Disneyworld. Not too cold, and today it has been raining. Utah weather is so strange which means we should brace ourselves for a big snow storm. That is usually how it works.
But I can’t seem to get enough soup this time of year. It is perfect for a chilly day and so comforting. Since the New Year is here, it is time for some more veggies since they didn’t make much of an appearance for the Holidays! This soup has so many yummy veggies, and you won’t be able to get enough of this creamy, cheesy soup!
