I had a can of cheddar cheese soup in my cupboard. I don't why I bought it, but I wanted to use it. So, I searched for various recipes to make this soup using a can of cheddar cheese soup in the recipe. I really couldn't find one that I liked. So, this is my version. We had it for dinner this evening and it got "two thumbs up" from by husband. He's a pretty picky eater, so I felt like I won an "Oscar."

Ingredients

6 Tbsp

6 Tbsp
flour
2 tsp
garlic powder
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
32 oz
chicken broth
1 can(s)

12 ounce packages, frozen chopped broccoli
16 oz
velveeta cheese, diced into small pieces
salt and pepper to taste

Step-By-Step

1Melt oleo/butter in a large pot on medium high heat.

3Combine flour, garlic powder and nutmeg together. Stir into onion mixture until combined.
4Whisk in chicken broth, cheese soup and milk.
5Microwave frozen broccoli for approx. 4 minutes. The broccoli needs to be just barely tender. If the broccoli pieces are large mince to the size you desire.
6Stir broccoli pieces into the soup mixture.
7When heated through, stir in Velveeta cheese just until melted.
8Season with salt and pepper to your preference.
9If desired use a stick blender and blend soup to desired consistency. My broccoli was chopped on the small side right out of the bag, so I left it as is and didn't do anything else to it.
10Enjoy!! We sure did!!!!!!!!!!
