Cheesy Potato Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by RSL5709

I received this recipe from a good friend, tweaked it just a bit to our liking, and it is amazing! We love it, and it is so easy and quick that it's perfect for a busy weeknight. Serve with a salad and some crusty bread, and it's a whole meal! *UPDATE 1/22/08 I often use less butter when I make this, and also usually omit the sour cream. It is a very rich soup so cutting back on those helps a bit, but it is really good with it too!

This is a really different potato soup and we loved it. Tangy from the sour cream with a light cheesiness and great flavor. Instead of grating the carrots, I sliced them as I wanted a chunkier soup. I did use Smart Balance Light in place of the butter, reduced fat Velveeta, and reduced fat sour cream.
