Soup-er Friday

Sorry no pictures to accompany this post. I had it on the menu for this week, but we were lucky to be able to go to dinner with our friends tonight. Can't pass up a chance to eat Mi Pueblo! Yum. Thanks guys :)

PS. This post is celebrating my 225th blog post! Yahoo.

This is my fave go to dinner. It is good anytime of the year because it is fairly light. But, I do not mean light on your wasteline. It is defintely not calorie free. But, its worth it! As you're making this dish go on taste and how much you need to feed your family. It is easy to make a small amount or a huge batch. I choose to use bakers potatoes bc they are really starchy which thickens your soup. But, I think any potatoe would work.

Cheese Potatoe Soup

Large can Chicken Broth
Potatoes (4 reg or 2 bakers)
1/4-1/2 pack velvetta, in chunks
green onions 2-3 chopped
pepper to taste
Optional: carrots, broccoli, celery, bacon or ham

Bring chicken broth to a boil with green onions. Add potatoes until soft. (If you'd like to add other vegis I would at this point too) Mash some potatoes for thicker soup. Add velvetta a little at a time. Stirring occassionally. Taste as you go to make according to how cheesey you want it. Add pepper to taste. Bowl up and enjoy!

We love to top ours with ham or bacon. I like to add some extra green onions, too! This batch will feed a small family. Can easily make a larger batch by adding water or more broth at beginning and extra potatoes.

I can't wait to see all the recipes you come up with!!! Remember to link to your post, not your blog. To add or view the recipes just click the Mr. Linky link. Enjoy! We may have to keep this up...

oops I linked mine on here and haven't put a soup up yet. I wasn't sure how mr. Linky worked. I thought if I put my name in I could then she everyone elses soups. Didn't realize that my name would be linked and no soup up yet. Homemade chicken vegetable will be up soon.
