This soup is great! I tweaked it a little though by adding 4 cups of chicken broth (instead of 2 1/2 cups of water and the bouillon), 8 ounches of 2% Sharp finely shredded cheddar cheese, 1 can of fat-free evaporated milk, and not peeling the potatoes but slicing them about 1/4". For the last 30 minutes, I added the cheese first, then the milk (hoping to avoid the mild curdling as mentioned by someone before). When done cooking, I used an immersion blender to blend it all together which took care of the chunky skins, but gave it some texture. When serving each portion, I put in a dollop of fat-free plain yogurt and sprinkled some of the same cheese on top. YUM!
