For richer soup, substitute milk in place of water, or add sautéed celery, onions, or carrots to your liking.. Also, try adding just a touch of bacon bits!
8 cups water (or use milk for richer soup)
16 oz Bag of Southern Style cubed hash browns
Up to 16 oz Velveeta Cheese/ for personal tastes
(optional: 2-3 strips cooked bacon or 2 TBLS real bacon bits).
