Potato Cheddar Soup
This was SO delicious! I think I had 3 bowls of it at dinner time. Like so many other things, I had never had this before but it sounded delicious, and boy was I right!
The original recipe comes from www.Cooks.com and I did A LOT of tweaking to it. The original recipe just didn't have enough of anything.
What you'll need;
4 medium sized potatoes - you can also substitute sweet potatoes for a healthier version (they taste exactly the same)
3 - 1/2 cups of chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon parsley
2 cups of cheddar cheese - shredded
1 - 1/2 cups of milk
The first thing you'll want to do is peel and dice the potatoes. Then put the potatoes in a pan over high heat, along with the 3-1/2 cups of chicken broth, add all of the seasonings and boil for about 20 minutes, or until a fork pokes through the potatoes easily. Turn the heat down to medium/low heat, scoop out half of the mixture and blend it in a food processor.
Re-add the blended portion to the rest of the soup, then add the milk and shredded cheese. Mix until melted and warm.
Serve and enjoy!
I am sure you will love this recipe, it is so good! We also had pita bread along side as a dipper :)
