Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli Soup
I've slightly altered this recipe because I'm only cooking for myself and my husband. I use one can of cheese, one cup of milk, and one cup of water. I usually buy about a pound of fresh broccoli and chop it up, leaving it chunky. Sometimes I add diced carrots, which goes great with the broccoli. I never measure my seasoning (that's just how I am). I always put in black pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, Mrs. Dash original, and sometimes just a dash of the ground mustard powder. I have used mild cheddar, sharp cheddar, mexican mix cheese, and colby jack blend cheese for this recipe and I've found that all cheese works great for this. Def. do not add the shredded cheese until the very end of cooking. I always use an entire package of shredded cheese, which is the 8oz this recipe calls for. This soup turns out very creamy and delish. I serve with crushed saltines and all of the soup gets eaten right away.
