This is a great recipe! My 4 year old liked it even after she found out it had broccoli!
I decided to cut the recipe in half and to make it in the crock pot. Here's how I altered the recipe - I used 2 lbs velveeta, 1/4 onion, 1/4 cup green pepper, 1/4 cup butter, 8 oz frozen brocolli, 1 can chicken broth, 1/2 cup milk and 1 tsp. minced Garlic. I didn't need the cornstarch or extra water since I used the crock pot.
I cubed the velveeta and put it in the crock pot on low. I sauted the onions, green pepper, and garlic in butter, then added the brcocolli and covered in the chicken broth and milk. After boiling off some of the liquid in the pan, I added this to the crock pot. I stirred it together, and let it cook for about 3 to 4 hours on low, stirring at least once an hour.
It was delicious and my whole family loved it. They are already asking me to make it again.
Remember, if you use the cornstarch to thicken the soup, mix it with the cold milk first then you have to bring it to a boil with the rest of the soup.
