Our leader handed out this recipe this week. It's actually called Creamy Vegetable Soup, but the Velveeta makes it cheesy so I renamed it. It's wonderful! I doubled the recipe and added an 8oz pkg. of Louis Kemp imitation crab. It's almost like a chowder.

A couple years ago I got a recipe during a WW meeting for a cheese soup using velveeta lite and cans of diced tomatoes. I can't recall what else was in it now and can't find the recipe! But I remember it was really great over a baked potato.

Anyone else remember this one or ever hear of it?

Hiya Christine

Recipe as follows..

2 pkg of California Style Veggies (frozen)
1 can diced tomatoes..
3 cans of Heathly Choice Chicken Broth or something 94% fatfree
10 o/z light velvet cheese

I brought the Veggies and Broth to a boil then added the cheese.
I tried the cheese soup with the tomatoes and with out the tomatoes I preferred with out.
I added about 1/2 of onions to mine.

1 pt per cup.

I really like it with a can of Rotel instead of just tomatos. The spice with the soup is great. I like to use one bag of broccoli florets, one of green beans and one of 'mixed' veges. Just what you like!

I agree, this soup is wonderful and one of my favorites. It's so easy to make and it's delicious and filling.

A variation on this that's really good -- add 1-2 torn up corn tortillas. Gives it a nice tex-mex flavor, without adding a lot of points. (2 4-inch corn tortillas = 1 point)
