1-2-3 Cheesy Potato & Broccoli Soup

Oh, here come the holidays.  Can you hear them?

Get ready for the busiest time of the year with a super simple recipe.

Like, no brain power involved.

And even less physical effort.

I'm telling you.  You'll be surprised at how good of a soup comes from 3 ingredients.

I came up with this concoction based on two Weight Watcher soups I used to make back in the day.  One was a potato soup using frozen hashbrowns and one was a broccoli cheese soup using frozen broccoli.

So, now I bring you, thick, creamy, hearty and healthy potato soup with broccoli and cheese!!

For your soup, you will need:

1. Frozen Potatoes O'Brien (if you don't like peppers and onions, just get the regular frozen hashbrown potatoes)
2. Frozen Broccoli Florets & Broccoli with Cheese Sauce
3. Chicken Broth (one 32 oz box)

Dump all these things in a big soup pot and get it boiling.  Once it boils for about 5 minutes, lower the temperature to medium and simmer for about 20 or so minutes.  The soup will thicken upon standing.

I added salt and pepper to the soup, as well and topped it with cheese and chives.

The soup makes about 6-8 servings.

I mean, really.  Doesn't get much easier than that!
