The best broccoli soup I have eaten to this point. Turned out very smooth and with an excellent taste. I used 12oz of Velveeta in mine, and the taste was just right. Also reheated well. As suggested, I served it with pepperoni bread.
This is an awesome broccoli and cheese soup recipe!! I pretty much followed the recipe as written, but used one can cheddar cheese soup and one can fiesta nacho cheese soup to replace the velveeta cheese and also reduced the chicken broth to 1 1/2 cups. Very quick and easy recipe, the best broccoli cheese soup I have ever made!!
Cheese and broccoli play tag with each other in a fantastic taste adventure. A must try for anyone who wants a go to recipe for cheese & broccoli soup. I've made this countless times and have never been disappointed. <br/><br/>I like to leave the broccoli in big chunks for nom nom texture.
