  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen California mixed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots)

  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen broccoli

  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth

  • ¼ cup butter

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 (1 pound) loaf processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed


  1. Place mixed vegetables and frozen broccoli into a large soup pot. Pour in chicken stock and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in flour until smooth and cook for a few minutes until lighter in color. Whisk in milk and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in cheese until melted; stir cheese mixture into vegetables. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes more.


If soup is not thick enough, stir in instant potato flakes to desired thickness.
