If I had to pick a favorite soup, this may just be the one. Cheese and broccoli, YUM!! Every Halloween and Christmas Eve I make soup for dinner. This, along with Cheesy Potato Soup, are the ones I make the most.
1 (15 ounce) jar cheese whiz
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 quart half and half
2 cups small broccoli flowerets
1 small onion, finely chopped
In a large pot, simmer broccoli and onion in broth until tender. in a medium pan, melt butter, stir in flour to make a paste. Slowly wisk in half and half. Add to broth and cook until thickened. Add cheese whiz and cook until melted.
