The best dang Broccoli Cheese Soup ever!!!

Hello 43 friends! :) I am SO excited you have decided to follow me. I hope you enjoy your stay here!

Today I want to share this recipe for Broccoli Cheese Soup I found from Jen over at Scissors and Spatulas!
 I love Broccoli Cheese Soup. But I hate that every time I order it I am underwhelmed.
 I hate when it is pureed, I want to taste the broccoli!
 So after stumbling across her post, I decided to make my own. 

Of course with any recipe you need to make your own tweaks to suit your taste. 

I used:
1/2 cup Butter
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp garlic
2 tbsp flour
1 lb broccoli (I used fresh)
32 oz chicken broth
1 lb Velveeta, cubed
2 cups milk
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp crushed red pepper

Melt the butter and saute your onions and garlic until onions are translucent. 
Add 2 tbsp flour and spices and stir to incorporate. 
Add your chicken broth and broccoli and simmer, covered until broccoli is tender (15-20 minutes). 
Then add your cubed Velveeta and milk and stir until cheese is melted. 

Super easy. SUPER delicious! 
Look at that texture!!!!!!!!!!

I really hope you try it!
