It has been about 40 years since I have had Velveeta in the house, and was going to sub grated cheddar, but decided to make as written. Glad I did. Velveeta has a flavor that would have been missed in this soup. Delicious bowl of soup. I used Uncle Ben's but one of the precooked microwave pouches.

This soup really warmed my tummy this winter. We love it and I have made it 2 or 3 times recently. A must have during the winter when you need something warm in your tummy, that tastes as delicious as this soup does!

Made this recipe pretty much as given, using some chopped chicken breast that I had in the freezer! Much appreciated the low-fat, low-sodium ingredients used here, & the only change I made was to use lemon pepper instead of the ground pepper! Definitely worth making again! Thanks for sharing it!
