What a nice, creamy, soothing, soup. The weather has turned cool, and this is a great, warm bowlful of comfort food. It was so easy and quick to make. Nice balance of flavor between the potatoes, and onions, and creamy soup base. I used sweet paprika so it would not add anything too spicy. I like my soup comforting and mild. This was so good, and we really did enjoy eating it. James put a little shredded cheddar cheese on top of his soup, but it definately did not need it. Thanks, Nez, for sharing this one.

This is a great recipe! It is easy to follow, and even easier to make. I topped it with some shredded cheese and added a little more salt.This is the best potato soup I've ever made. I should've doubled the recipe because it's almost gone!

What a quick, easy, and wonderfully unique tasting soup. The paprika combined with the creamy soup make an excellent combination. I used closer to a tsp. of salt and a couple of good grinds of fresh pepper and it tasted fantastic. I served this with fresh baked bread and it was great!
