One of my favorite combinations is broccoli and cheddar. I love eating broccoli mixed in a cheddar sauce and I also love it served as a soup. I've never really tried a spicy broccoli and cheese soup so I had always wanted to. Then this recipe came along.
Full of delicious broccoli and cheese flavor, this spicy broccoli cheddar soup recipe uses a spicy flaming cheese that really kicks it up a notch. And with only 5 ingredients, this soup is easy to make.
We love adding a bit of spice to our food so it has a kick to it, like these keto buffalo chicken wraps. If you don't want it to be spicy, you can use just a regular colby jack cheese.
How To Make Spicy Broccoli Cheddar Soup
- 4 C broccoli florets
- 4 tbsp minced garlic
- 3 ½ C chicken broth
- 1 C heavy whipping cream
- 4 C Flamin Jack 5 alarm cheese (found at Sam's)
If you don't have access to the Flamin Jack cheese, you can substitute it with a colby jack, habañero, and jalapeño flavored cheese.
To Make the Soup
In a large pot over medium heat, saute the garlic for 1 - 2 minutes or until fragrant and slightly brown.
Add in the chicken broth, heavy whipping cream, and the broccoli. Turn the heat up a bit so that it is medium to high and let the soup come to a boil.
Once it starts to boil turn the heat to low and simmer for an additional 10-20 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.
Add in 3 C of the cheese and stir until melted. Once the cheese has melted, remove from heat.
If you want a bit of extra kick, sprinkle more cheese on top just before serving.
