"It's creamy, it's cheesy and it's good. You can add chicken if you like. I season the broth with garlic powder, pepper, sugar and salt." — JEANIE BEAN

1 (8 ounce) package
processed cheese, cubed
This was very good and easy to make but the first time we made the mistake of pureeing the whole soup. It made it too thin. The next time we purreed only half the soup. It is better with a little more chunkyness to it.
I followed the recipe to the letter. At the beginning, I thought, "Hey, despite the recipe, I should really use a roux." Well, darn me for not listening to myself because my soup was like veggie cheerios in cheese milk. I added flour. Nothing. I let it simmer longer, nothin'. I'm disappointed.
Can't figure out for the life of me why people send in a so-called review that ends up with numerous revisions or a completely different recipe. If you want to submit a recipe just do it....don't bash others' recipes.
This soup was so simple and quick to make, and it tasted fantastic, equal to something I would expect at a restaurant. I followed the recipe except that I added cubed cheddar cheese. I pureed the soup with my hand blender until it was fairly smooth, and it turned out great! Everyone who tried it loved it.
I'm not a huge fan of using processes American cheese so I used a powdered cheese instead and my wife loved it. (She is the connoisseur of Broccoli soup). I thought it was good also. A better way to salvage what is left of our hearts is to use FAT FREE 1/2 & 1/2 and you can not taste the difference!
I give this 5 stars! The recipie was very basic & filling. The only thing I changed was I used 1/3c of heavy whipping cream in lieu of the other dairy (didn't want to trudge back out to the store) I also brought some to work and my co-workers tried it and loved it
Pretty easy to make! Very tasty! I also added some leftover rice (from chinese take out) to the mix and added a bit more chicken broth to make it thicker. Will be making this again for sure. Big hit with 12 year old son and husband :)
This is a great recipe, if you make it to thin by pureeing you can add a corn starch/water mix as a thickener. This made it a great consistency.
