Aunt Judy's Broccoli and Cheese Soup

This recipe was sent to me by my Aunt Judy. We try to eat fairly healthy but sometimes, you just need a cheesy, Velveeta soup. It's been rather cold and nasty here, so soup really fit the bill. This doesn't make a ton, but it's easy to scale it up. If you make a double batch, it will use the whole block of Velveeta.

Here's what you'll need.
 One 12-14 ounce bag of frozen broccoli
2 cans of cream of potato soup
 (Original recipe calls for chicken, but I just can't use it. 
I think it's gross, so I sub in potato soup every. time.)
1 and 1/2 soup cans of milk
1/2 stick butter
1/2 lb Velveeta

Begin by cooking your broccoli according to package directions. On the stove or in the microwave, either is fine.

 Once it's cooked, drain it then put it back in the soup pot and mash it with a potato masher. Do this to your desired texture, we like it pretty mashed.

 Dice your Velveeta cheese.

 Add everything to the pot with the broccoli.

 Heat through.
