Cheesy Velveeta Potatoes

This is a recipe I got from Josh's Grandma Shaw and I made it for the first time when we had a friend over for dinner when his wife and kids were out of town (It was Andrew....Ashley!) I didn't have high hopes for these because I thought they would taste too much like that fake Velveeta taste, but they actually don't. We really enjoy these and they are so simple and easy. I think they go great with grilled chicken and fresh veggies! Enjoy!Ingredients:

Potatoes (enough to fill a small crockpot)
Small package Velveeta
Diced onion
1 cube butter

Peel and dice potatoes into bite sized pieces (I never completely peel my potatoes... I like a little skin). Fill crockpot 1/2 full then layer with onion and add more potatoes and fill to the top leaving a 1 inch headspace. (You can see that I didn't actually fill my crockpot with potatoes. That would make WAY too much for us!) Sprinkle with salt. Set on high and cook 2-3 hours until fork tender. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the crockpot. Mine cooked much faster than this. When tender, drain thoroughly. Dice 1/2-3/4 package velveeta (I used like 3-4 ounces) and place on top of potatoes. Slice up butter and add to the cheese (I reduced my butter to 1/2 cube). Let butter and cheese melt (approx. 10 minutes) and gently stir. Delicious!
