Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup

Another delicious recipe adapted slightly from A Year of Slowcooking! I try not to use Velveeta unless I have to, so I only had about 4-6 oz. of it in the house. It was a blizzard outside yesterday, so I substituted the rest with shredded cheddar cheese and it still turned out fine. The taste of the peppers really cook out, so even my pepper-hating husband ate this soup without picking out the peppers! :)

·4 cups of chicken broth
·½ onion, finely chopped
·1 lb ground beef
·1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
·2 potatoes cut in 1 inch cubes
·1 tsp minced garlic
·1 cup skim milk
·4 oz. Velveeta, cubed
·16 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the meat on the stove top with the onion and drain grease. In a 6 quart crockpot, pour in chicken broth. Add garlic, bell pepper, and potatoes (unpeeled). Stir in browned meat and onion. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, or until potatoes are tender. Stir in milk and cheese 20-30 minutes before serving.
