Cheesy Vegetable & Ham Soup

This is one of my favorites for left over ham.


In a large pot combine the following:

2 C grated red potatoes {raw with skins}
1 C grated carrot
1 C chopped celery
1/2 c chopped onion
2 cans {about 4 C} chicken broth
2 C chopped ham

Boil the above all together for 30 minutes.

In a microwave safe bowl mix together:

1/4 C Flour
4 C milk
1/2 C Flour

Heat for 2 minutes

Cube 1 lb Velvetta cheese and add to the milk mixture.

Slowly melt the cheese and milk mixture in the microwave {I usually do 1 minute and then stir it with a wisk and then repeat until it's fully melted}.

Add this cheese mixture to the above soup mixture that has been boiling and serve.

Do NOT let the soup boil after you have added the milk mixture to the soup as it will curdle.
