This was tasty on a cool evening! Easy to make. My husband didn't care for it but I loved everything about it! Thanks for a great recipe.
Because of time constraints today, I was unable to bake the potatoes. So, I took the skin off and boiled them on the stove-top--just like I would to make mashed potatoes. I used green bell pepper instead of celery. Kit, I know how you like things spicy~so I decreased the cayenne to 1/4 teaspoon and it was perfect for our tastes! My potatoes weren't very large, so I ended up using 7 regular sized potatoes. When I started adding the half-n-half and milk, I felt I only needed about 1 1/2 cups of milk to make the soup to the creaminess we wanted. This soup is AWESOME! My hubby is in lunch heaven right now. Thanks, Kitz!
