DeeDee's Potato Cheese Soup
Cook in a large pot until tender:
5 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion chopped fine
1 stalk celery, cut fine (my family omits this because my kids hate celery in soup)
1 carrot sliced
1 quart water or chicken brother
5 tsp chicken granules if using water or 1 tsp chicken granules is using chicken broth
frozen peas--about half a bag
Cook until veggies are tender
In another pot make a white sauce:
Melt 1/2 cup butter
Add in 1/2 cup flour and mix
Whisk in 1 1/3 cups milk until mixture is smooth.
Cook until smooth and slightly thickened, then stir into cooked veggies.
Add 8 oz of Velveeta cheese, chopped up.
Warm and stir until cheese is melted. Serve.
