Broccoli Cheese Soup

* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/4 cup flour
* 1 tsp. salt
* 1 tsp. paprika
* 2 Tbsp. minced onion
* 4 cups milk
* Pepper to taste
* 1 tsp. wortcheshire sauce
* 1 cup (about 1/4 lb) velveeta cheese
* 1 package frozen broccoli, cooked and drained

Melt butter in sauce pan over low heat.  Add onion and cook slowly until tender.  Blend in milk and flour, stirring constantly and cook until smooth and thickened, over med heat.  You may have to add more flour for desired thickness, or more milk for thinner results.  Add salt, pepper, paprika, wort. sauce, and cheese and stir until cheese is melted.  Fold in broccoli.  I always blend in the broccoli with a hand mixer so the broccoli is finely chopped.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!
