This soup will keep in the fridge for a few days and will reheat quite nicely. This makes it a fantastic quick and easy meal that you can reheat whenever you’re feeling hungry.

Using different combinations of cheese is a great way to alter the flavor the soup. For example if you use a blue cheese you will get a very strong tasting soup. A good blend that I love to have is half mozzarella and half cheddar cheese.

- Serve & Enjoy
- If you prefer you can leave the cornstarch and milk mix out. The soup will however be very runny and may not be as enjoyable.
- Seasoning can make or break a dish but this is particularly true with a soup. If you’re finding it a bit tasteless then try adding a bit more salt however be careful to not add too much as salty soup isn’t a good experience.
- You can swap out the mozzarella cheese for something else like cheddar for a stronger flavor. There is a ton of different varieties of cheese that you can try out. Each will offer a different flavor that will completely change the dish.
- If you like a smooth soup then you can try blitzing it. Keep in mind this will change the texture and flavor but certainly a must for anyone who doesn’t like chunky soups.
