Ingredients

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1/2 Cup(c)  butter
1 Cup(c)  carrots, diced in 1/8 inch cubes
1 Cup(c)  onions, diced
1/3 Cup(c)  celery, diced in 1/8 inch cubes
1/4 Cup(c)  flour
3 Cup(c)  chicken broth
3 Cup(c)  half and half
2 Pound(lb)  pasteurized processed cheese (like velveeta)
1 Tablespoon(T)  fresh parsley, chopped

Preparation

Melt the butter in a large, heavy soup pot over medium heat. Add the carrots, onions and celery all at once. Saute the vegetables until they're soft, but do not let them brown. Add the flour to the pot and stir to combine. Cook until the mixture begins to turn a light brown color. Raise the heat to medium high and add the chicken broth a little at a time. Continue to cook the soup and stir it with a whisk until it thickens to the consistency of a thin pudding. Add the half and half and reduce the heat to medium low. Do not let the soup boil. Add the cheese, stirring until it's melted. Just before serving, add the parsley. Garnish with diced tomatoes and jalapenos, if desired.
