Creamy Potato Soup

Potatoes are one of my family's comfort foods; whether, they're boiled, broiled, smashed, mashed, baked, fried, stemmed, or creamed. Sometimes, raw with a sprinkling of salt!

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

4 - 5 medium
potatoes, diced
1
3 oz bar cream cheese, soft
salt and pepper, to taste
1 c
ham, chopped fine
1 c
shredded colby jack cheese, room temperature
1/2 - 1 c
milk
1 can(s)
cream of chicken soup
1/4 c
onion, chopped small

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook potatoes, onion, salt & pepper, until soft & onion is clear; drain. DO NOT DISCARD POTATO WATER. Put potato water into soup pot. Put potatoes in mixing bowl, beat until MOST of the lumps are gone.
2
In microwave safe bowl, stir together cream cheese, milk & cream of chicken soup. Microwave on low for 1-3 minutes, stir until well blended. Pour this into potato water, stir over low heat until well blended. Slowly add small amounts of this mixture into potatoes in mixing bowl; blend until "soupy", then slowly pour this mixture into soup pot. Stir until well blended.
3
Slowly stir in shredded cheese & ham. Stir until blended. Do a "taste test". Add more seasoning if desired. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes, for flavors to meld; stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Serve with crusty rolls as a main dish or with veggies as a side dish.
