Vegetable Bacon Bit Chowder

I LOVED this chowder! Helped myself to three servings the first night we had it for dinner! Bacon bits included it is still a rather healthy dinner choice! SO MANY VEGGIES!!!


  • 3 cups broccoli florets 
  • 2 medium diced potatoes 
  • 2 medium carrots thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 bell pepper chopped 
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms 
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 cups milk, divided 
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules 
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce 
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cubed velveeta cheese 
  • 1 cup bacon bits (or amount desired if any are desired at all) 

Directions: In a large saucepan, combine the first seven ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add 3 cups milk, bouillon, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. 

In a small bowl, combine flour and remaining milk until smooth; gradually stir into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese just until melted as well as mix in bacon bits. Yield: roughly 9-10 cups.
