A few weeks ago, it actually felt like fall around here. Today, it is 80 degrees...but we'll forget about that for now and pretend. Just imagine, it's a beautiful fall day...just enough chill in the air. You've had a long day at work and want something warm and comforting for dinner. So does your family. What could you make that is quick but definitely has that homemade feel? I suggest this potato soup! It is souper (HA! couldn't resist!) easy and very kid friendly.
Aunt Merle's Potato Soup
5-6 red potatoes (not the tiny ones, the bigger ones)
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium onion)
water to cover
2 cans of cream of celery soup (I use 98% fat free)
1 pound Velveeta type cheese (1/2 of the standard block or the whole small block, I used 2% version)
chopped jalapenos to taste
1 oz. jalapeno cheese if you want to add some extra spice
Chop potatoes and onion. Place in your large stock pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and then cook until potatoes are fork tender. Meanwhile, cut the cheese into cubes. When potatoes are ready add the remaining ingredients...do NOT drain the potatoes. Stir over heat until cheese melts and everything incorporates into a yummy, cheesy, potato soup! Enjoy!
