Jalapeño Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup

Updated: Dec 31, 2023

If you’re in Fort Worth, Texas, stop by the famous Hoffbrau Steak House for a bowl of their spicy Jalapeño Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup and one of their big ol’ juicy steaks! I loved that spicy soup and the waitress actually gave me the recipe! I did tweak it a tiny bit, but all I can say is this here Texas soup is good and ya’ll need to try it out. So, make yourself a big ol’ pot and tell that handsome cowboy of yours that “Soup’s on!” YUM!

I thought this recipe sounded weird (using water instead of milk), but the folks at Hoffbrau Steak House in Fort Worth, Texas assured me this was exact recipe for their dee-lish-us, famous Jalapeno Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup. It was so good, I went home and made it for myself the next day, and, I’ll be darned, if it didn’t taste good. However, I did tweak it a bit (added fresh jalapeno and Asiago cheese) to take it from good to GREAT! So, here goes.


2 quarts water

½ cup cornstarch

½ cup COLD water (must be cold!)

1 bunch fresh broccoli flowerets (steamed in a little water for 2 minutes and then finely chopped / Hoffbrau nukes fresh broccoli for 5 minutes on high and then finely chops )

1 can Campbell’s Cheddar Cheese Soup

2 pounds Velveeta Cheese (cut into ½ inch cubes)

½ cup Asiago or White Cheddar cheese (grated)

1 ounces sliced jalapeño peppers (from a jar or can and finely chopped)

1 small FRESH jalapeño (seeded and finely chopped)


  1. Add 2 quarts of water to a big ol’ soup pot. Bring that water to a boil. Once it’s boiling, add the can of cheddar cheese soup and whisk ‘til it’s blended.

  2. Git yourself a little bowl or big coffee cup and add and blend the cornstarch with the COLD water. Whisk this cornstarch/ COLD water mixture into the cheese soup and boilin’water in the pot. Keep whisking ‘til blended.

  3. Turn off the heat under your pot and slowly add the cubed Velveeta Cheese, stirring constantly. Once blended, stir in the grated Asiago and the white cheddar until blended.

  4. When it’s all melted and blended, add all the chopped jalapenos (canned and fresh) and the steamed, chopped broccoli. Give it a good stir to blend it all together.

  5. That’s it! Now, you’re ready to serve it up!
