Mida's Broccoli Soup

It's cold outside. And nothing can warm a soul faster than a bowl of soup, especially when its rich, creamy and umm umm good! My sister in law, Mida, has the recipe for some soul warming soup. It 's her Broccoli Cheese Soup.

Mida's Broccoli  Cheese Soup
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 Tbsp butter
1 package frozen broccoli
1 small half and half or heavy whipping cream
almost an entire small block pepper jack cheese, grated
1 small block velvetta cheese, cubed
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. ground chili pepper (optional)

In saucepan add chopped onion and butter. Saute onion until clear. Stir in broccoli and bring to temperature. Add half and half and ground chili pepper.  Mix. Then add cheeses a little bit at a time so that it does not scorch the bottom of the pot. After cheese melt, eat!

Leigh....not much of a cook...would love to be, but I guess I don't have the patience.
DH is wonderful cook and I am great helper. I can follow recipes and will try this soup.

Oh, Yummy. I could have used this recipe last night! I was concocting a soup that was just ok. The pepper jack cheese would have been better.
