“This is a great, very flavorful soup. Good for serving at luncheons or special gatherings with a quiche. To make this soup a little fancier, add 1 cup sliced mushrooms and 1 cup white wine with the onions.”

For years, I wished that I could duplicate the broccoli and cheese at Chili's, where I worked in college. But since it wasn't made at the restaurant, I couldn't. Now, THIS recipe is as good, if not better than Chili's and every other restaurant B & C I've tried. On the advice of others, I doubled the cheese and the broccoli, used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk and I cut the cheese into small cubes for quick melting. It was incredible, and I will absolutely be making this soup often. For family or for guests, watch out--this will knock your socks off! Word of caution: after cheese has melted, turn stove heat down to low or the cheese will stick to the bottom of pot.

With some "alterations" this soup is awesome and deserves a very high rating! I used 6 Tablespoons of Butter (1/2 cup is just too much)... I added 2-3 cloves minced garlic to the onion… once the onion was tender/translucent I sauteed several chicken bouillon cubes and then added 2+ pounds of fresh broccoli to the onion/bouillon mixture and added 6-7 cups of water. I used heavy cream instead of milk. I still used the garlic powder to taste and added freshly ground black pepper too. I only used ½ cup of cornstarch and blended it with the soup broth instead of water. Lastly I used medium cheddar cheese and added it at the very end. If you’re unsure about deviating from the recipe, at least use fresh broccoli and cream or half/half and make sure to add the cheese at the end! It will make a delicious difference!

Mmmm, mmmm GOOD!!! I read all the reviews before making it and did a few "tweaks" to the recipe and I am blissfully happy with the results. Keeper recipe! Here are the "tweaks" that I made: I covered the broccoli with THREE cans of chicken broth instead of four. I used TWO bags (14 oz) of broccoli florets I used TWO lbs of Velveeta (actually I used the generic grocery brand, it was cheaper) Instead of mixing cornstarch with water, I mixed it with the FOURTH can of chicken broth.
