Mama's Chicken Cheese Soup Revealed!

Good Evening Everyone!

I posted a picture of my very favorite soup on Facebook...like last week maybe.  I promised I would get the recipe to you all.  I think this would be a perfectly suitable post for today...ehhh?

Now this soup isn't for the faint of heart or if you are trying to watch cholesterol or count calories...Just be warned!  However, it is totally yummy anytime, but especially good on a cold night with some jalapeño cornbread.  When you honestly think it can't get any better...heat it up the next day...WOW!



So without delay...

Mama's Chicken Cheese Soup...


Makes a roasting pan full...LOL!  Now this is coming from Cesar who is trying to tell me what he uses.  He just looks at food and knows what to do...So if I forget something...email Cesar...LOL!  By the way I am NOT a recipe writer...Nor am I a cook...so forgive...

Ingredients:
4 Sticks Celery cut into small pieces
1 White Medium Onion chopped
1 Stick Butter  (Gotta love butter!)
3/4 of a 1 pound Bag Large Elbow Macaroni
(4) 32 ounce Cartons of Low Sodium Chicken Broth
32 ounces brick of Velveeta Cheese cubed  (see what I mean about calories and cholesterol!!)
Salt
Pepper
Dried Minced Garlic Flakes
(3) 10 ounce cans of chicken drained or or 3 chicken breasts cut into small pieces.

Saute onions and celery with the butter until translucent...Add salt, pepper and garlic flakes to taste.  Add chicken broth then add in macaroni and boil until done...We like it very well done....not
al dente on this one...Once the noodles are cooked add in the cubed Velveeta until melted.  Stir in chicken.

Mmmmm...mmmmm Good!

That's it...Hope you enjoy!
