A rich and creamy soup that is from a great friend of ours. We could eat this once a week during the winter months and is great reheated.

Outstanding!!! I didn't have heavy cream and used half and half and just loved it. Will definitely do this again. (this time with heavy cream) :) Really appreciate your sharing this recipe. Thank you.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot cook 1st four ingredients until potatoes are soft.
  2. Combine flour and butter and cook over medium-low heat until a smooth paste is formed (approx. 2 minutes) Thicken potato mixture with flour mixture.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Simmer until creamy, at least 30 minutes.
  5. We enjoy a thicker soup so I double the flour and butter or add a 1/2 of the small cube of velveeta at the final step.
