Ingredients

2 1/4 c
chicken broth
2 stalk(s)
celery, finely chopped
1 Tbsp
onion, finely diced
1 medium
carrot, finely shredded
1 stick
butter, melted
3/4 c
flour
8 oz
cheez whiz
1 oz
grated swiss cheese
1 oz
grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large pot, bring the broth to a boil.
2
Add celery, carrot and onion. Simmer 25 minutes until veggies are soft but not mushy.
3
Meanwhile, melt butter in a skillet over low heat. Add flour and stir constantly with wire whisk, until smooth and free of limps. Cook this roux 8 to 10 minutes, still over low heat, whisking constantly to prevent scorching.
4
Turn the heat down under the broth to medium-low. Add the roux to the broth. Continue to whisk until smooth and thick about 5 minutes.
5
Slowly add Cheez Whiz and grated cheeses. Continue cooking until cheese is melted, whisking occasionally.
6
Heat milk in microwave until warm. Add to soup slowly. Whisk until smooth. You can add more milk if needed for desired consistency.
7
Serve with toasted croutons or crackers. Refrigerate leftovers.
