Broccoli Cheese Soup

I had a can of cheddar cheese soup in my cupboard. I don't why I bought it, but I wanted to use it. So, I searched for various recipes to make this soup using a can of cheddar cheese soup in the recipe. I really couldn't find one that I liked. So, this is my version. We had it for dinner this evening and it got "two thumbs up" from by husband. He's a pretty picky eater, so I felt like I won an "Oscar."
