How to stop cheese from splitting or curdling?

Make sure to add cheeses at the end after you turned off the heat.
Keep on stirring the soup constantly until cheese melted.

Best cheese to use for this Broccoli and Cheese Soup?

I much prefer sharp matured cheeses.

That is why I chose parmesan and Red Leicester cheese.

But if you are not for strong, bold taste, substitute with milder cheese like cheddar.
