Served hot or cold, this is a thick and creamy soup made with processed cheese, carrots, celery and onion cooked in chicken broth.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 cups chopped carrots
- 2 cups chopped celery
- 2 cups chopped onion
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup margarine, softened
- 10 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 gallon milk
- 4 pounds processed cheese food, cubed
Place the carrots, celery, onions and chicken broth in a large pot. Cook over medium high heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Mix the cornstarch with the butter until smooth and set aside.
