Simple Potato Soup aka Chip Dip
I started out making a simple potato soup for lunch because I didn’t want to have to leave the house again during school hours. Just started pulling things out of the pantry. This is a super easy recipe that would be a great base for several soups.
- Bag of Simply Potatoes (used diced but sliced would be fine)
- Bag of cheese
- 2 Cans of Cream of Whatever (used chicken and mushroom)
- Milk or half n half…fill cans of soup with milk (used one of each)
- 2 carrots shredded (started with 4 but soup was getting a little orange for the girls!)
Combine soup, milk, carrots and potatoes in large stock pot. Simmer until potatoes for tender (about 15 mins). Do not boil the soup of the milk will..well just be gross! Before adding cheese, smash some of the potatoes with either a smasher or back of a slotted spoon. Remove from heat and stir in bag of cheese until melted. Salt/Pepper/Garlic to taste.
Made 6 large servings. Served with bread and salad.
Notes: Potatoes are already seasoned so go easy on the salt. Soup will thicken as it cools. We blended the remaining cooled soup until smooth and the results was a wonderful dip! Added a little hot sauce and it was great on chips!
