Cheesy Potato Soup

This soup is quick and simple to make and is very tasty.  This is basically my regular potato soup recipe but I change it up several ways to make different soups.  I will tell you about them in a later post. 
Potatoes - diced
Carrots - I like to use either canned or shredded carrots
1 onion - chopped
Chicken Bouillon or chicken broth
Cream of Chicken Soup
Milk or Cream - either work great
Velveeta Cheese
Red Pepper Flakes
In a large pot I put water, potatoes, carrots, onions, chicken broth or bouillon, salt, pepper and pepper flakes and cook until potatoes are tender.  Then I add in 1 can cream of chicken soup and either 1 can of cream or about 1 cup of milk that I have mixed cornstarch with to the mixture.  The cornstarch mixed with the milk will make your soup thicken up.  Reduce your heat and add in however much Velveeta cheese you want.  I cut it up in small cubes so it will melt faster and I usually use about 1/2 of one of the large blocks for my large pot of soup. 
We like to eat ours with oyster crackers.

  1. Hi Jen

    I'm your neighbour in the Beautiful Thursday link up. Thanks for the great recipe...I'm always looking for soups to go with my husband's salad for lunch. I see you're a GMG too..nice to meet you! I just finished Colossians and will be doing the
    Advent study too. I'm sure I'll be back to check out more of your blog.

    God bless!
