I love an easy soup that can be made in very little time and uses leftover ingredients. This cheesy broccoli soup I put together included leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and bacon from our breakfast. Because of the versatility, feel free to change things up with different vegetables to suit your family or what you have available. Leftover chicken would work great or simply skip the meat altogether. And even better, it is creamy from the VELVEETA® and super flavorful from the Ro*Tel®, no need to add any seasoning. Keep in mind however that the original Ro*Tel® does give it some kick so if you have family members who need a tame soup, consider using the mild version instead.
1 lb (16 oz.) package of VELVEETA®, cubed
2 cans chicken broth
1 pkg frozen broccoli
1 cup frozen corn
1 can Ro*Tel® diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 cup leftover chicken/turkey, broken up (if desired)
6 slices of crumbled cooked bacon for garnish
Over medium heat, cook chicken broth and frozen vegetables for 8 minutes. Add VELVEETA® and stir until smooth and completely melted. Add meat if desired. Stir and cook 5 minutes or until hot. Top with crumpled bacon.
This soup is delicious, especially with the bacon, VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel® combination. My husband and I loved it. Next time however I will serve it with some fresh bread as I must have went through two glasses of milk with the kick of flavor!
