Creamy Cheesy Potato Soup

Ingredients you will need for Creamy Potato Soup

  • Cubed Southern Style Hashbrowns - These are great because they can be purchased at your local store and come in a bag ready to serve.
  • Cream Cheese - This gives the soup a creamy smooth rich flavor.
  • Chicken Broth - You can make your own or get it from the local store and it will add a lot of great flavor to the soup.
  • Onion Powder - Adds some spice. Use only enough to your liking.
  • Garlic Powder - Adds some flavor but if you don't like garlic just leave it out it will not effect the soup at all.
  • Mild Cheddar Cheese - Use shredded cheese this gives it the cheesy flavor of a loaded baked potato.
  • Black Pepper - Pepper to you taste.

Tip When Preparing

  • If you feel the soup is too thick, just add more chicken broth until it reaches the desired consistency. 
  • You can customize this soup easily. If you don’t like a spice or seasoning, leave it out or add in something else that you like better like red pepper flakes or hot sauce. Get creative and make it your own!

This potato soup can also be frozen for up to six months. Let the soup cool completely before putting it in the freezer-safe container. When ready to eat, let it thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating.

Reheat individual portions in the microwave or reheat the entire pot on the stove over low heat. You may need to add extra broth or you can add just a little half and half if it has become too thick.
