  • large pot
  • Soup Bowls
  • Ladle


  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes or beef
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 cup diced carrot
  • 10 ounces frozen mixed vegetables 1 package, (I usually buy the broccoli, carrot, and cauliflower combo)
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup  (I used the 98% fat free kind)
  • 1 can milk (once you add the cream of chicken, use that can to measure your milk)
  • 16 ounces Velveeta cheese 1 pound, cubed (I used the 2% milk kind)


  • Place your bouillon cubes, water, celery, potatoes, and carrots in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  • Boil until bouillon cubes have dissolved.
  • Add your bag of frozen veggies and turn heat down to low (I usually set my burner at 3 out of 10). Place lid on top of pot and let simmer for 30-40 minutes (add water if necessary).
  • Add cream of chicken soup, milk, and Velveeta cheese.
  • Stir constantly until cheese is all melted.
  • Serve with bread bowls or warm rolls.


  • This recipe can EASILY be doubled- in fact I double it every time I make it and freeze half for another day. When you finish making it, let the soup cool down, pour into a Ziploc bag or other freezer container and store for another day! When you want to eat it, thaw it in the fridge and re-heat it on the stove top until warm (or even microwave it).
