Stacey's Creamy Chicken Soup

This is my go to recipe to take to a family that is sick or just needs some soup. I usually get a recipe request so I am posting it to be able to link it. My sister-in-law Stacey gave me this recipe years ago and it is on a crumpled stained piece of paper so it might be nice for me to print a new copy myself. It is not healthy comments about that :) The soup is a stock image. I never remember to take a picture but I wanted there to be something to "pin".

Stacey's Creamy Chicken Veggie Soup
Cook until tender:
1c potato peeled and diced
1 c carrots peeled and sliced
1/2 c onion diced (I usually do more)
1 c celery sliced
1 c cubed chicken (I usually use pre-cooked chicken from my freezer and add it after veg cook)
6 cups chicken stock

While cooking melt:
1 stick of butter (I know comfort food at it's finest)
then add: 
1/2 c flour
 Cook until mixed well and bubbly. Add to to cooked veggies with:
10 oz velveeta (seriously ) 
1 c frozen peas

cook until creamy, smooth and warmed through.
