Watch the sauce closely to be sure it doesn't bubble over.

Thanks Emily for this recipe:) I am going to make it tomorrow. I am trying to think of what would go well with it...any ideas?
Cheesy Potato Soup
12 potatoes, cubed
2 cups carrots, sliced
2 cups celery, sliced
1 cup onion, chopped
1 tsp. salt
7 cups water
7 chicken bullion cubes
1 Tbsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup butter
1 head fresh broccoli, chopped
2 lbs. Velveeta cheese
2 cups milk
1 cup flour
Simmer potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, and salt in water until tender. Add bullion, mustard, pepper, butter, broccoli, and Velveeta cheese. Simmer until cheese is melted. Add flour to milk, then add to soup. Simmer for 15 minutes. Serves 12-15 people.
EDIT: When I made these the potatoes I used were really big and my soup turned out more like mashed potatoes. My kids wouldn't eat it and Tyler liked it but didn't eat much so I ended up freezing a lot. I thought it kind of had a funny texture after thawing. But overall I think I will make this again when I have a bigger crowd:)

1lb ground beef
1 diced onion (or less depending if you like onion)
1 quart stewed tomoatos
1 can Minestrone Soup
1 large can pork & beans
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Brown hamburger and drain
Combine all ingredients and cook on stove or crockpot
(Tyler likes it when I substitute Baked Beans for the Pork & beans...they both taste great!)
5 carrots chopped
5 celery stalks chopped
1 onion chopped
one box Uncle Bens "Long Grain and Wild Rice" packet (including seasoning)
2 cups cooked and shredded chicken (I used two cooked canned chicken cans from Sam's club)
4 cups chicken broth or stock
4 cups water
1 can cream of chicken soup
Put everything in the crock pot on high for 4-6 hours. I usually add the rice during the last 2-3 hours because I dont like it to be too soft. Also, you may want to add more or less water depending on how you thick you like the soup. I like it thick so I use less.
