Linda's notes for this recipe:
I love potato soup and this one is delicious made with low fat Velveeta and crispy bacon. If you want it to be a bit healthier, you could make it with turkey bacon.

Each 1 cup serving is 4 Points Plus

how many points is this per cup? I have a fiend on weight watchers and I make lunches and share with her when we are at work. Weight Watcher's Potato Soup

Cindy, This is an old WW recipe and when I got it, the recipe stated that it was 2.5 points per cup. Since WW no longer counts 1/2 points and have now gone to the Points Plus system, I would suggest that you count 1 cup as 4 points plus. To be absolutely sure you could put the ingredients in the WW recipe builder on WW website and it would tell you how many points plus per serving it is. A safe estimate though, in my opinion would be 4 PP. I have edited my recipe to reflect the Points Plus value.

I just made this again yesterday. It is very good. I do follow the measurements and ingredients to the letter. It seems like a lot of potatoes and not enough liquid, but works out perfect. Very easy and quick. The most time consuming part is peeling the potatoes, especially if they are small! LOL
