  1. Combine chicken stock, sweet potatoes, ham, celery, and onion in a stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until sweet potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir green bell pepper, carrot, corn, garlic, basil, parsley flakes, black pepper, and salt into soup and simmer until vegetables are softened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; whisk flour into butter using a fork. Cook and stir mixture until thickened, about 1 minute. Slowly stir milk into butter-flour mixture until completely smooth; continue cooking and stirring over medium-low heat until thickened, 4 to 5 more minutes. Stir Cheddar cheese into milk mixture until melted and smooth.
  3. Stir milk-Cheddar cheese mixture into soup; cook until thickened and heated through, about 5 minutes.

Excellent! Only thing I did different was I made it in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours and added more veggies. For the last hour or an additional hour, you add your milk mixture and turn sl...

I used some of my homemade pesto rather than the dry basil and parsley. I also omitted the milk and flour because my husband isn't fond of cream soups. It was wonderful and very simple to make. ...

This was a wonderful soup! I used 1/3 cup of butter to make the roux, which is just a touch more than 5 tablespoons, but easier to measure. I forgot to add the cheese to the milk and roux before...
