Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • 2 ½ cups milk

  • ¾ pound VELVEETA®, cut up

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained

  • teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add flour; cook 1 minute or until bubbly, stirring constantly.

  2. Stir in milk. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for 1 minute.

  3. Add remaining ingredients; Velveeta cheese, broccoli, and pepper. Cook until cheese is melted and soup is heated through, stirring occasionally.

Tips

Substitute frozen chopped spinach; frozen cauliflower, chopped; or frozen asparagus spears, chopped, for broccoli.

Use Your Microwave: Place onion and butter in a 2-quart microwaveable casserole dish or bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until onion is tender. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Microwave 6 to 8 minutes or until Velveeta is melted and soup is heated through, stirring after 4 minutes.
