Chop the onion and saute (if desired). Put everything (except for the velveeta) in a large pot. Do not drain anything or add water to the condensed cream of mushroom soup. Cover and let simmer. Cut the velveeta into cubes and. Stir quite often (to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pot) until it is completely melted. Serve.
This with a side vegetable (or salad) or just chips, lasted for 3 meals for my husband and myself. When it was on the lower side (for the 3rd meal) I added some sliced green onions and mushrooms. I absolutely loved it and my husband said it was good but that he would have preferred it without the green onions. All the ingredients (from Walmart) came right at $13.
