Chicken Cheezy Soup for #SoupSaturdaySwappers


The theme this month, should you choose to accept it, for Soup Saturday Swappers that is, is a soup using Cheese. We're celebrating Dairy Month and Ashley of Cheese Curd in Paradise is our hostess.
I was conflicted, torn, beside myself.

It's hot outside so I needed something that could be made fast, and of course it had to taste good as well.

I wavered between my beloved Mexican style soups, and the dim, faint memory I had of a used to be famous beer cheese soup from the now defunct Baby Doe's Matchless Mine in Dallas. Which apparently was based on Cheese Whiz.

And then my attention went to a soup my niece made for us about ten years ago, which was basically a potato cheese soup.

I tell you my mind was confused looking at all my options, so I went sorta mexican, sorta beer cheese soup and kinda potato cheese.

Confused?
Not when you taste this you won't.  I'm just calling it Chicken Cheezy Soup.
It's also a sippable soup.  I know, but having a soup I can sip while working at my computer, is a good thing.

I think this one hits most of the right notes as well. 

To start with, I used some of my home made stock.  You can use packaged stock as well. I did amp up the flavor using some Herb Ox chicken seasoning as well. It's salt free, but adds a nice note.

   And there is plenty of salt in the cheese sauce. Yes, I said cheese sauce, I used some Velveeta Cheese sauce in here. I don't use a lot of prepackaged stuff, but DH likes his mashed taters with the addition of instant garlic potato flakes and you can't beat the meltability (is that a word?) of Velveeta.  I chose to use the cheese sauce in this recipe.

  1. There is just something about thick, meltable, cheese-like stuff that makes soups so delicious.

  2. When you want a melty cheese for a sauce or a soup....Velveeta or Cheez Whiz is a fast and easy way to assure good results.

    1. The only time I use either one, is for a soup or a sauce. Or... my locally famous Mac n' Cheese.
