The Rich Soup

It is officially spooky season, which also means soup season! I love soup and I do adore cheese and spice. I gave thought to soups over this month so many times and I landed on this one, the perfect spicy, cheesy, mustardy dish. This rich soup really danced on my taste buds. I recommend this to anyone who loves cheesy and spicy soup.
