Broccoli Cheese Soup

This soup is AMAZING!
The taste and texture is fabulous.
Huge bonus is that it is super fast and easy to make.
By the end of dinner, Andy and my two kiddos were bargaining on who got to have what was left in the pot.
Next time, I think I better double the recipe.
Once again, a big thank you to Melanie over at My Kitchen Cafe for this yummy soup.

What you Need:

1 can chicken broth (you can use 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of Shirley J Chicken Bullion)
1 small onion, diced

1/3 c. flour
1/4 c. butter
1/2 teaspoon of pepper

2 c. milk (whatever kind you have)
1 1/2 c. shredded of extra Sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 c. shredded swiss cheese
3-4 cups of steamed chopped broccoli

How to Make:

Simmer chicken broth and chopped onion for 15-20 minutes in a covered small saucepan, until onions are soft. Heat milk in microwave for 1-2 minutes. In a separate medium-sized stockpot, melt butter then add flour and pepper. Cook together for a couple of minutes, then whisk in warmed milk. Stir and heat together on medium-high heat until soup starts to thicken. Next add chicken broth and continue to stir until well blended. Add cheeses and steamed broccoli. Serve immediately.

Makes 3-4 servings

I had never made broccoli cheese soup either, but I am telling you this recipe was so easy and tasted even better than what you would get going out. You will have to let me know if you liked it.
