Restaurant Style Baked Potato Soup

Recipe by Grimms Restaurant T

LEFT OVER BAKED POTATOES STOP HERE! Who dosen't like potato soup?! This one is infused with an amazing basil flavor. It is very authentic, but the basil gives it a little something wonderful..a new dimension if you will. I bet having leftover baked potatoes from a grill would really bring a new smoky flavor to this soup if you've got em'.

In comparison to other potato soups I make, this was less rich and one of my favorites. I used 8 left over baked potatoes, which is definitely more than 2 cups and wouldn't have it any other way. I also used fat-free half and half, and chicken broth instead of the chicken base and water. I will definitely make this again.
