Loaded Potato Soup

Lori Ann


You will love this unique potato soup. It's easy to make because the potatoes can be cooked and cubed the day before. It's very creamy and filling and the fat free half and half adds a little sweetness so I don't suggest you substitute it. Kick it up a notch by adding more Franks hot sauce to the recipe and top it with more Franks and loaded topping when you serve.
