Happy Halloween! Are you dressing up this year? Do you have kids you’ll be taking out trick or treating tonight? Stay safe and have fun!

If you’re planning a special menu for the ghouls and goblins in your life and want a black and orange food theme, try making this soup which fulfills the orange part of your menu. You might want to serve it with black olives and black grapes (which are on sale at Safeway today).

Canadian Cheese Soup

2 T. butter
½ cup finely chopped carrots
¼ cup finely chopped celery
¼ cup finely chopped onion
¼ cup flour
2 cups milk
1 ½ cups chicken broth
Dash paprika
Salt and pepper
1 ½ cups shredded American cheese

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium low heat. Add vegetables and sauté until tender. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute to ensure it’s well incorporated. Slowly stir in milk and chicken broth. Add paprika and salt and pepper to taste. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Stir in the cheese and continue stirring until melted. Do not boil.

Serves 4 as a side dish, 2 as a main dish.


  1. That looks really good! I made Welsh Rabbit (Rarebit) yesterday because the fiance was craving it. Have you ever made that before?

  2. I haven't made Rarebit in a long time but anything with cheese is always good in my book!!
