This is my favorite potato soup recipe - very easy and quick. I always end up at least doubling the recipe and there's never much left! I think I must have found this recipe in a newspaper somewhere, but I'm not sure!

I've made this for everyone I know they all love it. I just use 216 of cans of broth to make it a little thinner.
This tastes amazingly close to the real deal! It is SO good! I've made this several times. It's the only soup my hunny will eat! Making it for him tonight .Thanks for the recipe!
Just like the real deal!
