Hearty Cheesy Potato Soup

by Laura

What would soup week be with out some kind of creamy cheesy soup?  Nothing says comfort like a big bowl of  soup that consists of a cheesy base with some veggies.  Love it!  This is one way to get the veggies in my kiddos.

Now this soup gets it’s cheesiness from Velveeta.  The good thing is that the Velveeta is the only fattening thing in there.  The rest is veggies, water, bouillon, milk and flour.  No butter at all in this base!  This recipe made just enough for my family of 5 to gobble up.
