Who doesn’t like a good Broccoli Cheese Soup? Well, my wife for one, but that isn’t the point.

It’s no-frills, easy, and you can add Jalapeños and bacon to it to send it over the top.

  • 8 cups Broccoli chopped enough to go into the soup
  • 3 cups Sharp Cheddar
  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 stalks Celery chopped
  • 8 tablespoons Salted Butter Go for salted...it just tastes better
  • 1 Yellow Onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup flour to thicken
  • 2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 large Carrot finely chopped


  • Place the butter along with the chopped onion and celery into a pot and sweat these bad boys off. Once translucent, add the flour making sure to keep stirring. If you think you can stop stirring, you are wrong. Keep stirring.
  • Add the broth and continue to stir. Add in the pepper and salt. After about 2 minutes, you are going to add the rest of the ingredients and let them cook down for about 7-10 minutes. Add in the milk and cheese. Make sure to keep the temperature on a solid 4/10 on the heat scale or you will scorch it and no one likes scorched soups.
  • Garnish with some Jalapeños and some more cheddar and you got yourself an amazing soup.
