Hamburger Cheese Soup

Searching for a good soup recipe, I ran into this recipe on  I decided to try it out and found that Gunner LOVED this soup!!!!  The 3 of us went through the entire crockpot of soup in one sitting, only leaving 1 bowl for my lunch the following day. 
Note:  The recipe calls for this to be put in the crock pot, but I just made it in my big deep skillet.  I simmered for close to 45 minutes to get the vegetables cooked. 

1 lb. browned hamburger
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 c celery chunks (I left this out because Chris doesn't like celery in soup...)
1 1/2 c diced potatoes
2 tbsp Lipton onion soup mix  (I dumped an entire envelope in)
1 c chopped carrots (I used my Pampered Chef chopper to make them smaller chunks for Gunner)
1/2 c corn
1 large jar Cheez Wiz

Brown hamburger and onion.  Drain fat.  Place in crock pot and add soup mix.  Then add the remainder of the ingredients.  Add water until water is about 1 inch above ingredients.  Cover and cook 4 - 4 1/2 hours on high or all day on low.  (It looks watery and not very appetizing at this stage but it will get better...)  Before serving, add the Cheez Wiz.  Melt the Cheez Wiz in the soup.  You can garnish with shredded cheddar cheese.

Let me know what you think...
