Fun Fact ... Velveeta wasn't invented until 1918. So whoever made this recipe in 1886 had to wait 32 years before actually cooking it!

This recipe is missing 1/2 cup of flour to be added to the pan of sautéed vegetables with the cornstarch.

This soup was gross. I was very excited because i love velveeta cheese, but this soup turned out runny and flavorless.
