Zesty Potato Cheese Soup
“I really like to make potato cheese soup from scratch,“ says Karen Pigmon of Corning, California. “But one night we were in a hurry, so I added a few ingredients to a can of potato soup instead. It was so good that now I always keep a few cans on hand…it’s so quick and easy! Serve it in bread bowls, and it’s always a big hit with kids.“
