Cheesy Potato Soup

"I found this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks, "Texas Cookin' - Lone Star Style" and changed it up just a bit. This soup is creamy and delicious! I made it for my DH because he had some dental work done. He normally is not a big soup fan, but he loved this recipe!"

    It tasted great but I changed a lot of things. I didn't have any chicken bouillon granuals so I just added some chicken broth and I didn't add the onion, celery, bacon or chives. I either didn't have it or I didn't have enough. Although I did add fresh chopped ham and cut back on the salt since the ham gives it some saltiness. It was still great even with all the changes I made! Next time I will have everything. Thanks for the recipe!

    With this recipe I found how to make the soup I have always dreamed of! I actually added tons more cheese, A cup of parmesean, shredded american, goat cheese, and some mexican white cheese. It is super yummy. I also used the already made real bacon bits from the salad dept. to put on top and my oh my!!! Everyone love loves my soup...well yours ha! I forgot to add tat to give it a little zing...I added about a teaspoon full of crushed red pepper. This is truly heaven in soup bowel!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p><br /><br />The picture is of me and my husband at the Grand Canyon - November 2008. <br /><br />I've just started a food blog and would love for those interested in cooking and recipes to check it out. You can follow my food journey at <a href=http://onecookbookatathyme.wordpress.com/>http://onecookbookatathyme.wordpress.com/</a></p> <p>Cooking for family and friends is one of my favorite things to do. I spend most of my free time in the kitchen, either checking out Recipezaar or experimenting with a newly found recipe. <br /><br />My DH and I are both from Texas and we both come from Italian families. Anyone who stops by my house should be prepared to eat!!! I'm always forcing friends and family to try whatever it is that just came out of the oven. I know that is a horrible habit but I can't break it... I think it must be the Italian in me! LOL :) <br /><br />My sister (<a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=85654>Cookin_Kit</a>) and I used to help my Mom (<a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=124343>JudaThann</a>) in the kitchen a lot growing up. I guess that is where my love for cooking began. I also enjoy sharing the kitchen with my DH (<a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=202688>Sgt. Pepper</a>). He doesn't cook as often as he did when we first got married, but he makes an awesome pizza and still makes them at least twice a month. He keeps his recipes for the dough and the sauce top secret, even from me. LOL <br /><br />I have two step-children. The oldest graduated from college and the youngest is a sophomore at Texas Tech. I also have two cats and a dog. When I?m not cooking or hanging out here at Zaar, I like to knit, garden, read, watch old movies, travel, take photos, scrapbook, volunteer at a non-kill animal shelter, and spend time with my family and friends. <br /><br /><img src=http://images.snapfish.com/34359%3C8323232%7Ffp47%3Dot%3E232%3A%3D8%3A3%3D429%3DXROQDF%3E23237%3C2733%3B9%3Bot1lsi alt= /> <br /><br />I'm a co-host with <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=21399>Karen From Colorado</a> in the <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum?f=37>Mexican/Tex-Mex/Southern United States Cooking Forum</a>.
