Creamy Cheddar Soup

Calling all cheese heads! Support the Packers during the Big Game with this simple and delicious soup. Use this as a base for a potato cheese soup or even a broccoli cheese soup. The possibilities are endless… Can you guess who I’ll be rooting for on Sunday, February 6?

¼ small onion, diced
