We really love this soup and so does everyone I have ever served it to! It makes a big pot but not to worry, it seems to disappear pretty fast! Great to serve or a rainy or cold day!
POTATO CHEESE SOUP
In a 4 quart pot melt 4 tablespoons butter and add:
2/3 cup onion, chopped (or teaspoon onion powder, if you don't like onions)
3 stalks celery, washed and chopped small
After onion and celery has cooked a couple minutes add:
6 Large Potatoes, diced
3 cans chicken broth and 2 cans water
Let potatoes boil till tender
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste (I use 1 tsp)
Stir in 1 1/2 cups cubed Velveeta cheese and stir till melted.
Add 1 cup half and half and remove from heat and serve
