How to Make Canadian Cheese Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large pot, bring the broth to a boil.
  • 2Add celery, carrot and onion. Simmer 25 minutes until veggies are soft but not mushy.
  • 3Meanwhile, 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.
  • 4Turn 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.
  • 5Slowly add Cheez Whiz and grated cheeses. Continue cooking until cheese is melted, whisking occasionally.
  • 6Heat milk in microwave until warm. Add to soup slowly. Whisk until smooth. You can add more milk if needed for desired consistency.
  • 7Serve with toasted croutons or crackers. Refrigerate leftovers.
