Broccoli Cheese Soup

Posted by on January 13, 2015 in Recipes, Soups & Stews | 5 comments

As the temperature goes way down, a great soup seems so appealing for a cold evening.  I had a bunch of broccoli left over, so I quickly make this Broccoli Cheese Soup the other night. What I like about this soup is that it is low on calories, easy to make, takes very few ingredients, and freezes well! You can add chicken or ham, if you wish.

Ingredients:

 32 oz. chicken broth

Broccoli (sorry, but I just add what I want, I don’t measure perhaps 1 cup to 1 & 1/2 cup chopped)

1 can Rotel ( 10 oz. ) diced tomatoes –  (mild or however hot you prefer) or just add regular diced tomatoes for a very mild version

10 oz. Velveeta  2% Milk ( for the skinny version) or regular Velveeta

Add onion salt and garlic salt to taste.

Add cooked chicken or ham (optional)

 

Directions: 

Cook broccoli in chicken broth until just tender. 

Add Velveeta in chunks so it melts faster.

Add Rotell or other diced tomatoes

Add spices to taste…

Add chicken or ham, if desired.

Heat and serve. 

Serves 4-6
