"This soup is so wonderful served with hot muffins on a cold winter day! The different vegetables in a creamy, cheesy soup. If soup is not thick enough, stir in instant potato flakes to desired thickness. This will make the soup thick (and a little grainy.)" — Bryanne R.

1 (16 ounce) package
frozen California mixed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots)
1 (16 ounce) bag
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
1 (1 pound) loaf
processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed
One of the easiest and best soup's I've every made. Used the frozen Calif. mixed veggies but used fresh broccolil - about 4 big stalks cut into bite sized pieces. Only used 1/3 cup flour and stirred that into the 1/4 cup butter and stirred until it was a nice golden color. Used 2% milk. This time I used the real velveeta cheese next time I'll try it with the 2% velveeta and I really don't think it will change anything but the calorie count. Also put 4 chicken bouillion cubes and 2 beef boulilion cubes into the broth - think it give it a bit more depth of flavor. Being in Texas I had to add a few sprinkles of crushed red pepper flakes. Great on a cold winter night!
i was disappointed with this. i dont know what it was that i didnt like about it. i followed the directions. i used velvetta made with 2% milk. and slightly less vegetables that it called for, just because the bags i bought were 14 oz and 12 oz. but i wouldnt of thought that would make much of a difference.
I have been making this recipe for about 10 years now and my family loves it. Sometimes I make it as the recipe says, but it is also great with a few extras. My husband finds it more filling when I add some diced potatoes, diced ham, and a can of whole kernel corn. Good stuff!!!
This soup is fabulous. My family and I loved it. I used skim milk in place of regular milk just to lighten it up a bit and still got a nice creamy soup. I served it with some nice warm crusty dinner rolls. So good. A definate keeper.
very good. loved it. quick and easy. i used a cup of chicken broth (its all i had left) and then made my own broth from water and ramen noodle seasoning to finish the other cup.. i know its ghetto, but its all i had to work with. i know that if next time i actually have enough broth, or if i use a little less seasoning from ramen, it will be better, cuz the flavor was a bit too strong. but that was all on me. it was my fault. otherwise, AWEsome!!
UPDATE: I made this again, and made some additions and substitutions.. MMMmmMMm... yummy. not as thick as I normally like it, but deLICious flavor.. the first four ingredients I left alone. I had all of them. And since I didn't have Velveeta cheese (and it's processed. trying to be more healthy ;)) I changed the rest of the ingredients to my way of making cheese sauce without it. I used 4 tbs butter, 1/4 c flour, 1 cup milk, and 2 cups of regular shredded cheese. Also, when melting the butter, I added a little less than half an onion and 1 stalk of celery to saute in butter then did the rest as is.. still such an awesome recipe. I really love this stuff, and there's a few ways to do it without ALL the ingredients and its still similar to the original and SO SO mmm mmm good!! hehe.
This was extremely delicious and simple to make. I used a Mexican Cheese blend instead of Velveeta (which I didn't have on hand), and cut up some chicken breast to add to the soup. Very filling! My entire family raved about it.
Pretty good. I wasn't sure why the roux was made separately then added in, so I just did the roux first then added in the milk, broth, and veggies. My cheese, which was a nacho cheese instead of velveeta, was frozen as well, so I added that in a minute or two after adding the veggies. I had to use a regular mixed veggie blend instead of the broccoli--we don't have broccoli in the house (freezer or otherwise) right now, but it worked well. Just maybe made it less of a broccoli soup. I halved the soup and it still made enough to go with our lunch today and for 2 lunches at work for the both of us this week. I'm surprised there's no seasonings anywhere in this recipe; without the nacho cheese, I'd definitely be wanting to add some salt, pepper, and maybe some garlic and onion. For all that, though, it's an easy, quick soup recipe. Thanks for sharing!
This soup is DELICIOUS! I made it last night for my husband and we both loved it! The only thing I changed was I didn't add the mixed vegetables, but I added about 2 lbs. of cut up russet potatoes. I did everything else as written. Thanks so much for this yummy recipe this will definitely be made again, and again! This is a keeper.
