Yummy Potato Soup

I brought this to our work party last week and had a lot of requests for it so here ya go!

Yummy Potato Soup
2 cups diced celery
1 medium onion
2 teaspoons garlic
5 cups water
5 teaspoons chicken bullion
1 bag southern style has browns (the ones that are tiny squares)
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
7 ounces cheese whiz
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste 

2 cups  celery ( I like a lot in mine my mom makes it with just a tiny bit....anyone remember what the individual pieces are i cant!)
1 medium onion (more or less all depending on how much you want)
2 teaspoons garlic
2 table spoons butter

Dice celery and onion and saute until onions are translucent

Add 5 cups of water and 5 teaspoons. chicken bullion

bring to a boil

add a regular size bag of southern style has-browns (make sure NOT to buy the kind with peepers)

Let this boil until the potatoes are soft

While it is boiling in another bowl, add 3/4 cup melted butter 3/4 cup flour and 4 cups of milk.  Stir until all lumps are out.

Once Potatoes have softened add milk mixture to pot.

Bring to boil and add 7 ounces cheese whiz (please make sure you buy the correct stuff, this is not in a spray can i have had 2 people attempt to make this with eazy cheese.  this comes in jars)

I always add about 1-2 cups sharp cheddar as well.  This is not in the normal recipe but i PROMISE it tastes a lot better, make sure to use sharp cheddar too, and do not get the pre-shredded stuff, does not melt near as well.

add salt and pepper to taste 

Turn heat down and let simmer for at least 15 minutes.

Eat and enjoy!

hash browns instead of boiling potatoes? genius. I can't believe I hadn't thought of that sooner!
