Easy Potato Cheese Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by RuthlessWr

I got this recipe out of the newspaper while I was in graduate school in Tallahassee. I wish I'd written down who created it, but I've lost that information years ago. This is a family favorite and goes over well with kids. It's also almost embarrassingly easy.

Nice soup and quite thick and filling, even though I made this with low-fat chedder, 1% milk and half a tablespoon butter to save calories. The cheese seemed to have blended well with the rest of the soup, which doesn't always happen with some cheese soups. Perhaps because I used less butter, the vegetable mixture started sticking to the bottom of the pan after about 8 minutes of simmering so I started adding the rest of the ingredients then. My only suggestion is to add some salt to taste. I served this as a vegetarian main dish with a vegetable side. Thanks for this quick and easy soup.
