"Sneaky" because I use my immersion blender to grind up all the veggies. "Sneaky" because I use my immersion blender to grind up all the veggies.
Number of Servings: 16


    16 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into cubes (I suggest using clean and sharp kitchen scissors. MUCH easier)
    4 cups chopped broccoli
    2 cups baby spinach
    4 cups sliced mushroom caps
    1.5 cups chopped onions
    2 green bell peppers, chopped
    Season to taste with:
    garlic powder
    onion powder (different flavor than fresh onions!)
    6 cups shredded mild cheddar
    3 cups whole milk
    1/2 cup all purpose flour dissolved into cold water


In a very large soup pot, boil all the vegetables until soft. Use immersion blender to make a smooth texture. Add the chicken and all the seasonings. Boil about 20 minutes until cooked through, stirring almost constantly to avoid letting the veggies sink to the bottom. Add the dissolved flour, the milk, and the cheese, stirring constantly still, until the soup comes to a slow boil. Serve immediately.
