Cheesy Potato Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Polish Chick

This creamy, rich potato soup usually elicits many compliments at our church's annual Chili Cook-off! It's a good alternative for those not fond of chili. Very rich, so it's for special occasions!

The only change I made was to cut the recipe in half, since there were just 3 of us at the table, & we had just slightly more than enough of this great tasting soup! Wonderfully satisfying, what with the bacon & cheese included! A great recipe, this is! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
