Our favorite is potato soup, and each pot turns out different for some reason, but the main recipe is below created by me on a very cold winter day. Soup simmering on the stove, combined with fresh bread hot from the oven is a perfect day no matter how cold it is outside.
Potato Soup by Sue
6-8 good size potatos, peeled and cubed
1 onion, cut up
1 can pepperjack soup ( cheddar or nacho cheese can also be used)
1 can creamed corn
1 can carrots, drained
2 stalks celery (cut into bite size) or 1 tsp. celery seed
1 c. milk, may need more
garlic, pepper and salt to taste
Cook potato's and celery till done, drain, add carrots and mash. In soup pot add potato's, carrots, corn, cheese soup and milk, blend well. Add garlic, pepper and salt to taste and simmer till hot and thick. More milk maybe needed to thicken soup to your liking. We like it thick, almost like a chowder. Top with minced chives. Serve hot.
I've also added chopped ham or bacon a time or two, but this standby is nice for a meatless meal on a cold day. Soup season is here! Enjoy and feel free to share your potato soup recipe with us.
