" Better Than a Baked Potato" Soup

Recipe by EmmyLynn
READY IN: 30mins




  • Peel potatoes and cut into large chunks. Put potatoes in soup pot along with onion, celery, and chicken broth. If there is not enough broth to cover the veggies, add a little water.
  • Cover, bring to a boil, and let simmer for approximately 20 minutes, until vegetables soften.
  • If you like thicker soup, drain off SOME of the liquid. If you like thinner soup, leave it as is and proceed.
  • Use a potato masher to mash up the spuds. Mash more or less depending on how creamy or chunky you like your soup.
  • Add white pepper, salt, and Liquid Smoke to taste.
  • Add sour cream and Velveeta, heat and stir until cheese melts. Dip the soup into 4 bowls. Top each bowl with shredded cheddar cheese, chives, and bacon bits.
  • Eat and smile :).
