Creamy Cheddar Soup

Here is another recipe that Kathleen found and made. I am so glad my girls like to cook and try new recipes. This really IS creamy. It was well liked at our house!

Creamy Cheddar Soup
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
1 small onion, diced
2 large pimentos, diced(we just used a small jar of diced)
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups cream
3/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar
1/2 cup green onions
Salt and black pepper
Dash cayenne pepper, optional

In a saucepan, saute onion and pimentos in butter for 5 to 7 minutes. Blend in flour. Add stock and cream. Cook until thick. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add 1/4 cup green onions, salt and pepper, to taste, and cayenne if desired. Garnish with remaining green onions.
