This is delicious but I made several modifications. First, I nearly quadrupled the amount of garlic, paprika, and pepper. I added more celery and onion than what was called for as well. I added celery salt (all good soup has it), and a bay leaf. I put everything but the cheese in the crockpot for about 3 hours. About an hour before dinner, I added the cheese cubes. This allows time for the meat to tenderize and flavors to meld without getting the cheese separation issue.
