Broccoli Cheese Soup

2 Tbsp butter
¾ cup chopped onion
6 cups chicken broth
1 tsp salt
2 pkgs (10 oz each) frozen chopped broccoli
1 pinch garlic powder
6 cups milk
1 pound velveeta, cut into cubes.
pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a large pot, and add the chopped onion. Cook till the onion is soft and translucent. Add chicken broth. Heat to boiling and cook 3 minutes. Add salt, broccoli and garlic powder. Return to boiling and cook 4 minutes. Add milk and velveeta. Continue cooking until cheese melts, stirring constantly. DO NOT BOIL or the milk and cheese will curdle and you'll have a nasy mess. Add pepper to taste (doesn't usually need any salt).

Notes: To make this recipe vegetarian, replace chicken broth with vegetable stock.
