Cheese Potato Soup

Our Test Kitchen downsized this family-favorite soup from Katie Peat of Palmer, Illinois. “It’s creamy and smooth, and easy to make,” says Katie. “I serve it with sandwiches or crackers and dip.”

    I did not make this soup - based on the ingredients alone it does not deserve a 5 star ratingI appreciate the nutrition breakdown! I cook from scratch to increase the nutritional value of my food.Lower the sodium and increase the quality of this soup by using real cheese such as colby jack. Make your own cream soup dry base mix to further lower the sodium content and increase the nutritional value. Use MSG free chicken base.I like the recipe on line that uses mashed potato flakes and thyme - very cost effective to reduce sodium and give up the canned soup route
