Author's Notes

This recipe uses California Medley Frozen Vegetables (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower).

Although freshly grated cheese melts smoother, 3 cups of pre-shredded cheese may be substituted as a time saver.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a large saucepan, melt the Unsalted Butter (1/4 cup) over medium heat. Add the Onion (1) and cook for 3 minutes, or until translucent. Stir in the Garlic (3 cloves) and sauté for 30 seconds longer.
Step 2
Add the Chicken Broth (3 cups) , Frozen Mixed Vegetables (2 1/4 cups) , Red Potatoes (1 1/2 cups) , Salt (1/2 tsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) , and Onion Powder (1/4 tsp) . Raise the heat to medium-high and bring it to a boil.
Step 3
Once boiling, lower the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are tender about 10 minutes.
Step 4
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together Corn Starch (3 Tbsp) with Water (3 Tbsp) until smooth. Add cornstarch slurry to the pot and boil until thickened, about 2 minutes.
Step 5
Remove the pan from the heat and add handfuls of Sharp Cheddar Cheese (1 block) at a time, stirring to melt between each addition.
Step 6
Once the cheese is melted, stir in Half and Half (1 cup) . Serve immediately.
