This is the best soup. I made to use up what I had on hand and it turned out delicious. My family loved it and it was a quick dinner.

Directions

  1. Combine chicken stock, sweet potatoes, ham, celery, and onion in a stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until sweet potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir green bell pepper, carrot, corn, garlic, basil, parsley flakes, black pepper, and salt into soup and simmer until vegetables are softened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; whisk flour into butter using a fork. Cook and stir mixture until thickened, about 1 minute. Slowly stir milk into butter-flour mixture until completely smooth; continue cooking and stirring over medium-low heat until thickened, 4 to 5 more minutes. Stir Cheddar cheese into milk mixture until melted and smooth.
  3. Stir milk-Cheddar cheese mixture into soup; cook until thickened and heated through, about 5 minutes.

This soup was amazing. My husband is on his seconds now and said, "This is one of the best soups I have ever had," This coming from a man who usually responds when I ask him how something tastes with, "it's ok." I only added a little salt and my picture should show, if it uploads, red bell pepper instead of green cause I had it on hand. Worth a five star rating.
