Broccoli Cheese Soup

Cooking for the fall party is in full swing.....I'm a bit behind this year...but hopefully everything will turn out o.k.

First on the menu list is our Broccoli Cheese Soup! This is always a favorite! So yummy with warm bread....YUMMO!

1 cup carrot, finely chopped
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped---I never measure any of the veggies just "guesstimate"
1/4 co onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh broccoli, cut in small pieces
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
4 oz Velveeta cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded provolone cheese

I triple this recipe.  In stockpot, heat first 6 ingredients to boiling; reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.  Combine milk, flour, paprika, and salt in a bowl.  Add to broth mixture.  Cook until thick and bubbly.  Add cheese and stir until melted.  Then I freeze in ziploc bags and lay flat in freezer so then I can stack them easier.
