I have made this soup for as long as I can remember and it is
one of those comfort foods that is a must for me. I can eat soup all year round.
There's just something about a cup of hot soup that really speaks "cozy" to me.
So, I thought I'd share it with you! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Creamy Potato Soup
1 pkg. bacon, chopped
1 c. chopped onion
4 c. cubed potatoes
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 soup cans of milk
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 green onion, chopped finely
salt and pepper, to taste
In a large pot, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Pour off all but 3 Tbsp. of the fat, add the onion and garlic, brown slightly. Add potatoes and enough water to cover the top of the potatoes, about 2 cups. Cook, covered until potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Combine the soup and milk, stir until smooth. Add to the potatoes. Heat but do not bring to a boil. Stir in your salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the bacon and the green onion just before serving.
*I sometimes add fresh green chilies and a dash of cayenne pepper for a hint of heat,
which my hubby loves!
A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to your bones.
