    Would never use processed cheese like velveeta. Used real cheddar cheese. Could use Jalapeno Jack for a more spicey soup. - 9/15/15

    This was very good, I skipped puree, used 4 oz of 2% Velveeta, all I could find and the rest fat free shredded cheddar. 1/2 a cup is just not enough! - 11/20/13

  • OMG this is exactly what I was looking for! I wanted to thick, creamy soup that was not filled with fat and this was perfect! My husband couldn't stop eating it! The only changes I did was added 1/4 cups of minced carrot for a little color and sweetness. I also used frozen broccoli! - 1/11/16

  • This was a great recipe! So easy and quick to make. I altered it slightly and doubled it and I still had it done within 45 minutes start to finish. I used cheddar cheese since we don't really like Velveta. Otherwise, great!!

  • I found little boxes of broth packets of sodium-free granules at my local supermarket. They are great for those who need a restricted intake of salt in their food. - 6/30/13

  • I made this recipe this weekend for a craft party - it was so good! I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth becuase my friend is a vegetarian. It was a little sweeter, but still good! - 1/24/11

  • Sounds good. I would assume the sodium is from the Velveeta. Question, who eats soup by the 1/2 cup? Seems like an unrealistic portion size. - 12/9/10

  • Wow, that's a lot of sodium for a mere 1/2 cup serving. What's up with that? - 11/16/10
