Yummy Cheese Soup


This is a very smooth and pleasing cheese soup. It is made with American cheese instead of Cheddar, and my children love it! It also makes a great base for broccoli-cheese soup, if you are so inclined.

  • 1 ¾ cups chicken broth

  • ½ cup finely grated carrot

  • ¼ cup finely chopped celery

  3. Stir American cheese into the liquid; cook and stir until melted smoothly into the mixture, 2 to 3 minutes.
