10 servings


  • 3 tablespoons salted butter

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 3 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 3 cups milk

  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix

  • 2 (1 pound) packages processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli

  • 1 cup finely chopped celery

  • ½ cup finely chopped carrots

  • 1 cup diced potatoes


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; stir in onion and bell pepper. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.

  2. Combine condensed soup, milk, and ranch dressing mix in a slow cooker; whisk until combined. Stir in processed cheese food. Mix in broccoli, celery, carrots, potatoes, and onion-bell pepper mixture.

  3. Cover and cook on Low, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted, 3 to 4 hours.

Cook's Note:

If your slow cooker runs on the hot side and you need more time before the rest of the meal is ready, turn the heat to Warm and continue to stir occasionally until serving. Too much cooking can curdle the soup. Turning the slow cooker off about 30 minutes before you serve will make it thicken up nicely.
