Not Your Grandma's Broccoli and Cheese Soup!

Tiffany Young


A creation of my crazy mind :D as you see I also serve mine with brats and fries but you do what you want.....and any leftover use the rest of that 1/3 cup of chicken broth to thin it out a little. It also goes beyond great on top of baked potatoes and fries...One of my 12 year old nieces favorites!

How to Make Not Your Grandma's Broccoli and Cheese Soup!


  1. In a large cooking pot pour the chicken broth in reserving 1/3 cup for leftovers.
  2. While waiting for the chicken broth to get hot (I set mine on 2-3) cube the velveeta cheese. When broth is hot add the velveeta cheese and turn down to simmer. Watch and stir to make sure the cheese is not sticking.
  3. After the Velveeta Cheese is melted add the can of Zesty Nacho Cheese...Stir in
  4. Once that is hot add the Heavy Whipping Cream when stirred in add broccoli..(I chop mine a bit for smaller pieces) once all that is heated up hot add the red hot hot sauce stir and it is ready!
