Cheesy Ham Soup

I posted this picture on Instagram and had request for the recipe.  I didn't have plans to blog about it - so I didn't write it down.  The best way for me to remember a recipe is to put it on my blog you go.

I put 2 T butter in a pan along with a good drizzle of olive oil.  I sauted 1 small onion along with 3 cloves diced garlic.  When that is soft, add some diced potato (4 small), 2 diced carrots, 2 C diced ham and 5 diced celery ribs.  I added some Tastefully Simple spice called "Bacon Bacon", salt and pepper.  

In the crock pot, I added 1 can great northern beans along with liquid from can.  Put the sauted mix from above into the crock pot too.  In the saute pan, add 4 C chicken broth (I used 4 C water and 2 t chicken base) heat.  Take 2 T butter and mix with 2 T flour with a fork - smash it together - add this to the chicken broth to thicken it.  If it is through a strainer before you pour into the crock pot.  

Once the liquid is in the crock pot add 4 oz. diced Velveeta cheese and let melt while cooking.  Put on low and forget it!  

Super good!
