Delicious Broccoli Cheese Soup

So I've been playing around with my Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup, and I modified it a little bit to come up with this recipe, and it is absolutely delicious!  Best of all, it is only 1 Weight Watcher Point per cup and it doesn't taste like diet food.  My friend and her mom absolutely loved this soup and wanted the recipe.

6 cups chicken broth
2 lb frozen bags of broccoli florets or about 10 cups
cooking spray
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
8oz reduced fat velvetta cheese, cubed
1/4 cup cornstarch (leave out for low carb)
6 Tbsp light sour cream
1 cup water

Spray large stock pot with cooking spray.  Sautee onion on medium heat until tender.  Add chicken broth, broccoli, garlic powder, and salt to pot.  Bring a boil and then cook on medium, covered, 15-20 minutes. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch, 1 cup water, and sour cream until completely blended. Add corn starch and sour cream mix and cubed cheese to soup. Bring to a low boil and then reduce immediately to a simmer. Stir constantly until all cheese is melted and soup thickens.  Makes about 12-14 cups.

Weight Watcher Points: 1 point per cup or about 99 calories
