Easy Cheddar Soup

(from cokerlj’s recipe box)

Haven’t tried, but Pam is a good cook.
This is made entirely in the microwave for convenience…but it could be made on stove top.

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped or shredded
  • 1/2 cup celery finely chopped
  • 2 cans chicken broth
  • 2 cans cream of celery soup
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/4 cup white wine (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/2 pound processed cheddar cheese, diced such as Velveeta.


  1. NOTE: There used to be a restaurant that served Beer-Cheese Soup. Might try using beer in place of the wine and some of the chicken broth. Also…could probably add a handful of broccoli if you like Broccoli Cheese Soup.

  2. Cook vegetables in microwave safe dish covered with plastic wrap on high 5 to 6 minutes until tender.

  3. Stir in butter, pepper and garlic.

  4. Add broth, wine and soups.

  5. Heat on high until begins to simmer.

  6. Whisk cheese into soup and cook on Medium (power level 5) for 5-6 minutes until cheese has melted.
