Mom's Potato Soup

I was at my mom's house this morning and she was making this for dinner. I will be making this tomorrow. She has a 6 quart crock pot, so that is what this recipe is for.

1 onion
1 can of corn
1 can of evaporated milk
2-3 cups of grated cheddar cheese

Cube enough potatoes to fill your crock pot just over half way. Rinse them off so your soup isn't too starchy. Put the potatoes in the crock pot. Add one diced onion and the can of corn - juice included. Let this cook in the crock pot until it's boiling pretty well, then turn to low. Mom didn't start this until around noon, so she put the potato/corn/onion mix in the microwave to heat up. Then the crock pot just starts cooking without having to heat up the food first.
About a half hour before you are going to eat, take it off the heat and add 1 can of evaporated milk, 2-3 cups of grated cheddar cheese, a few shakes of Mrs. Dash and some pepper, some chives, some parsley, or whatever sounds good to you.
The heat of the potato mixture will heat up the milk and melt the cheese.

This is great served with some crusty bread, a salad, or by itself.
