I've had a big craving for some Cheesy Vegetable Chowder, so decided today was the day I was going to make it. I've made it before and know it's such a wonderful dish, but always forget just how delicious it is. Wow! And my 12 year old and his friends all had 2 big bowls each. Must show you just how yummy it is :o)

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder
7 cups water
9 cubes chicken bouillon, crumbled
6 potatoes, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large white onion, chopped
1 bunch celery, chopped
3 cups chopped carrots
2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn
2 (15 ounce) cans peas
2 cups chopped fresh green beans
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
1 pound processed cheese, cubed

1 In a large pot over medium heat, combine water,
bouillon, potatoes and garlic. Bring to a boil, then stir in
onion, celery and carrots. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
2 Stir in corn, peas and green beans and continue to cook
on low heat.
3 Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt
butter. Whisk in flour all at once to form a roux and let
cook 10 seconds. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, and
cook, stirring, until mixture is thick and bubbly. Stir in
cheese until melted. Pour this mixture into the large soup
pot, stir well and heat through.
