The Gracious Wife
chopped or shredded
peeled and cubed
about 4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
salt & pepper to taste
Optional: Additional toppings such as bacon
chives, or sour cream
In a large stockpot, melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, onion, garlic, basil, and parsley. Allow to cook until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
When the vegetables are ready, add chicken broth, and potatoes. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and allow to simmer until potatoes are soft, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt the remaining butter over medium heat.
Add the flour. Stir to combine, and allow to continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes.
Slowly add the milk, about a 1/4 cup at a time, stirring to prevent lumps. Allow the mixture to heat through, then add to your soup mixture.
Bring your soup mixture back to a low simmer, then add your Velveeta and cheese, a little at a time. Stir mixture until cheese is melted and incorporated.
Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with sour cream and bacon, if desired.
