Quick and Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup

“I’ve been making this dish since a friend gave me the recipe years ago,” Janis Corkery relates from Independence, Iowa. “No one can believe how fast and easy it is to prepare. It often comes to the rescue when our children and grandchildren unexpectedly stop in for lunch.”

    Very tasty. I cooked it for 20 minutes because the vegetables don't get as done as I like them the way it is stated. I also used 1 can cheddar cheese soup and one can of nacho cheese soup for extra flavor. A very quick and easy soup!

    The first time I made this soup, I followed the recipe exactly. It was good, but the potatoes didn't seem completely cooked. Now I cook the potatoes in the oven first until they turn a light brown. I also cut up and cook approximately two heads of fresh broccoli to use instead of the frozen. Then, I put everything in a 3-quart crock pot and let it simmer for a few hours. Dinner is set to go and I don't have to think about it. It tastes great too-even my two-year-old son who hates broccoli loves this soup.
