One of my favorite things to cook (and to eat!) are soups, that’s just one of the many reasons I love fall and all that comes along with it! One I’ve been preparing a lot on these crisp fall nights has been this delicious recipe for creamy potato soup! It’s soo easy to make, and can all be cooked in one pot making cleanup a breeze! Enjoy!
Prep time: 15 min.
Total time: 35-40 min.
Here’s what you’ll need for the soup:
5 medium potatoes peeled & cut into 1-1 1/2 inch cubes
1/2 onion finely chopped
1 8oz. package of cream cheese
1 32oz. carton of chicken broth
1 Tbs. Butter or oil
Salt & pepper to taste
& for the toppings:
Crushed red peppers
Here’s how to make it!
First, melt the butter over medium heat in a large stock pot, then add the onions and sauté until they are just starting to brown. Then add the chicken broth & bring to a boil. Boil the potatoes uncovered in the chicken broth for 20-25 minutes until they are tender and you can easily mash one with a fork. Turn off the stove, and add your cream cheese. Using an immersion blender or hand mixer, blend the cream cheese and potatoes into the broth until the soup reaches the desired consistency. We like to leave a few lumps in ours! Add salt and pepper to taste, then serve with your choice of toppings and enjoy!
