I found this recipe for rich cheese soup in a Gooseberry Patch book and tried it this week for the first time. It is very good and very rich. The next time I serve it, I will only serve it as a side with something else less rich and less salty rather than making it the main item of the meal.
A few tweaks I made/will make… I will add more carrots. It did not take 30 minutes to heat. I heated it for only about 15 minutes since I did not want the vegetables to be mush. It also took less than 15 minutes to heat through and melt the cheese.
Rich Cheese Soup
- 2 stalks of celery, chopped
- 2 carrots, sliced
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1/2 stick butter
- 2-10 & 1/2 oz. cans chicken broth
- 2-10 & 3/4 oz. cans cream of potato soup
- 8 oz. Velveeta, cubed
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 8 oz. sour cream
- In a large stockpot, saute celery, carrots, and onions in butter. Add chicken broth and potato soup; heat for 30 minutes over medium heat.
- Blend in cheese, salt, pepper and sour cream. Simmer for an additional 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Makes 8-10 servings
(Sallie’s note: These would be small side servings, not meal-sized portions.)
