Quick & Easy Potato Soup
Recipe shared from K. Reaser
8 C chicken broth (2 large boxed cartons)
8 C potatoes (2 pkgs frozen cubes potatoes)
3/4 tsp seasoning salt
3/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp fresh minced garlic (I use the refrigerated variety)
9 slices bacon (I use precooked) cut into small pieces
8 oz cream cheese, cut into chunks
Combine all ingredients except cream cheese. Boil on medium heat until potatoes are tender. Smash potatoes several times to release the starch for thickening. If you like it chunky, smash less - if you like it smooth, smash more.
Reduce heat to low, add cream cheese.
Heat, stirring frequently, until cheese melts
Serve & enjoy
