  3. Puree the potato mixture with a stick blender until smooth and creamy. Coarsely blend the broccoli mixture.

  4. Add pureed potato mixture to the broccoli, along with processed cheese food and evaporated milk. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until cheese is melted and soup is heated through, about 15 minutes; do not allow the soup to boil. Season with salt and pepper.
