Cheesy Vegetable Soup

I got this recipe off of and thought we'd give it a try this weekend since it's been so cold and we're in for a small winter storm. Nothing helps make a cold winter day more tolerable than a nice bowl of soup!

You can really use any type of vegetable in this (broccoli, cauliflower, etc)

Cheesy Vegetable Soup

1 (16 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
2 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/4 tablespoon garlic powder
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
32 ounces processed cheese food, cubed

In a large microwave bowl, cook vegetables in microwave for 10 minutes on high. Stir and rotate midway.

In a large slow cooker, mix soup and water. Add onions, vegetables, and garlic, salt, and pepper to taste, and mix. Add cheese and mix. Simmer approximately 2 hours or until soup is creamy and cheese is melted.
