This is from a lady I work with. I'm not sure where she got it, but it is the best potato soup I've ever had.

Yum. I added some salt since I used low sodium chicken stock. I also used butter instead of margarine. I had never made potato soup before, and this was so simple. I had no evaporated milk, so I used regular 2%. Thanks for a great recipe!
