Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup

This cheesy broccoli soup is made right in the crockpot and is unbelievably wonderful!

The very first recipe I posted on my blog was Cheddar Broccoli Soup. It has been one of my family's favorite soups for the past 8 years and we make it often. I do get a little nervous because it is made with a Ragu Double Cheese Sauce and I'm always afraid that one day, I will go to the store and it will be no longer available. I have tried a few different types of broccoli cheese soup here and there - thankfully, the Ragu is still at the store. This soup recipe comes from Ree Drummond and I should've known that PDub would have the perfect broccoli cheese soup recipe for me to keep handy, just in case. It does use Velveeta - which I have to be honest, is not my favorite - so I do like to add a little hot sauce to kind of cut into that artificial flavor. I am fairly certain I learned that trick from Ree also. I love that this is made in the crockpot too - just one more awesome bit to the recipe.

What you need:
  • 1 lb. frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, finely diced
  • 5 cups chicken broth (vegetable for full meatless)
  • 2 cans cream of celery soup
  • 1/4 tsp. seasoning salt
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb. Velveeta
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Hot sauce, to taste
  1. In a slow cooker, add broccoli, onion, carrots, chicken broth, cream of celery soup, seasoning salt, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Stir together.
  2. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours.
  3. After 4 hours, take a potato masher (or immersion blender) and mash some of the soup.
  4. Add cheese and hot sauce, then cook on LOW for 15 minutes.
  5. Stir until cheese has melted. Adjust salt, pepper, and hot sauce to your liking.

This Bacon Beer Cheese Soup with Chicken is also a really amazing cheesy soup that I highly suggest - it's wonderful for Sunday football game-watching! I would love to try this Ham, Broccoli, and Cheese Chowder from A Day in the Life on the Farm because it looks like total comfort food and I love broccoli and cheese with ham!
