Broccoli and Cheese, If You Please Soup

Canned soup is great when you are sick, and you need sustenance. Or just don't feel like making a mess in your kitchen. But when the weather is chilly, and your stove is clean, soup is the perfect cure for both problems. The following recipe isn't the exact same one my mom used to make, but it is close, plus it is budget and time friendly. Add a cheater chicken, and some garlic bread and you have a yummy delish meal that will be a go-to cold weather dish.

1/2 cup butter
1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli
4 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 (1 pound) loaf processed cheese food, cubed
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2/3 cup cornstarch
1 cup water
1.) In a stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter until softened. Stir in broccoli, and cover with chicken broth. Simmer until broccoli is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. 
2.) Reduce heat, and stir in cheese cubes until melted. Mix in milk and garlic powder. 
3.) In a small bowl, stir cornstarch into water until dissolved. Stir into soup; cook, stirring frequently, until thick.
