Broccoli potato soup

A couple of years ago, my friend Lynn forwarded a recipe for an easy potato soup made in the crockpot.  I held on to it and decided to try it last week, but with a couple of changes. I added broccoli and grated cheddar and cooked it on high for a little longer than the recipe originally called for.  I must admit, it turned out pretty good!  Here's what I did:

Combine the following in a large crockpot:
1 x 30 oz. bag frozen, shredded hash brown potatoes
3 x 14 oz. cans chicken broth
1 x can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup finely minced onion
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Cook on high for 5 hours
Add a softened 8oz. block of cream cheese in small pieces (I whisked it in to incorporate it into the soup)
After the cream cheese is incorporated add:
4 oz. grated cheddar
1 lb. thawed, frozen broccoli chopped fine
Continue to cook for about one more hour
Garnish with green onions ( or more grated cheddar if desired)
