Potato Cheese Soup

Gluten Free Living – 2017

Potato Cheese Soup is awesome. No kidding. It’s filled with red potatoes, diced tomatoes with green chilies (yum!), onion and Velveeta cheese. I know, Velveeta isn’t the healthiest cheese on the block but it sure works splendidly with this recipe. Every time I serve this recipe to company, people go back for multiple servings. Really.

Years ago, our former pastor’s wife gave me several delicious soup recipes including The Dove’s Nest Fresh Squash and Cheese Soup, White Chicken Chili, this one and a couple more. I’ve made this super easy Potato Cheese Soup for company many times because it only calls for a handful of ingredients and everyone always salivates over it. Seriously. Velveeta makes everything better, plus how can you live without a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies added to everything????

About the middle of January I hosted our Bible Study Fellowship group at my home. I served Potato Cheese Soup along with a Cauliflower Cheese Soup, Mississippi Mud Brownies (which everyone drooled over), Be My Valentine M&M Cookies, Creamy Grape Salad, Broccoli, Pear and Pomegranate Salad, Spinach Pomegranate Salad and a loaf of my Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread (which is always a favorite). I made double batches of several things so the gals could take home leftovers. My intention was to pamper each of them with a delicious and fun meal.

This soup was a huge hit. Everyone wanted to take home the leftovers. If you’re looking for great comfort food the next time you’re working on your weekly menu plan, give Potato Cheese Soup a try. You’ll be so glad you did.

Scrub potatoes and cube. Place in a large stock pot and fill to the potato line with water. Add chopped onions. Cook until potatoes are tender, but NOT mushy.

If you’re using red potatoes, don’t peel the potato skins.
