Crock Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup


Craving an easy, filling soup?  Well, this is it! 
This Crock Pot Broccoli Cheddar Soup is thick, creamy and comforting.
 
 
Did everyone have a fabulous holiday?
 
I still have two Christmas' to attend this week so mine are still going strong.  We were able to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas morning together as a family, just the five of us.  We are usually traveling so it was special to just be at....home.
 
I also took a bit of a break from blogging {if you call 5 days a break}, but started my Top 20 countdown on Facebook.  I did a bit of research and found my Top 20 recipes from 2014.  I was super surprised on some of them.  Who gets so excited about a breakfast quesadilla?  Obviously, you guys do.  I'll be posting a recap here on the blog later this week.  Come back to check it out!
 
Meanwhile...
 
I didn't do much cooking this past week, but I did make this soup.  I've been trying to figure out how to make a creamy broccoli cheese soup in the crock pot for some time now.  I tried a couple of months ago and it was a complete and utter fail.  Like, big time fail.  It was a runny, icky, tasted like crap...MESS.
 
So, I got out some gusto and tried again.



This time it turned out pretty darn good.  And I craved....I used Velveeta.  Please don't send me the harsh messages.  I know it is crap cheese.  Processed, processed, processed.  So I guess if you don't care that I used Velveeta, make this soup.  If you do care that I used Velveeta, well.....sorry.

And I will say my kids ate this up quickly, even after they saw the broccoli {which sometimes sends them running}.  I'm not sure if I just caught them on a good night or they just really liked it.

Give it a shot!

  1. This looks delicious. My crock pot has never gotten so much of a work out as it has this fall/winter. No shame in a little Velveeta. I usually add some type of American cheese to cheesy soups. We will love this recipe, I know it:)

  3. I wondered how you got that color - now I know! You could also use American cheese in the deli - just ask for a big chunk of it and shred it yourself - so good! Happy almost New Year!
