Potato soup is my personal favorite!
(This is as close to scratch as I get!)
3 pounds potatoes peeled and diced
2 boxes or 4 cans chicken broth
1 onion diced
1 tablespoon celery seed or 1 stalk diced celery
1 carrot shaved (optional)
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 stick butter
salt and pepper
1 cup diced Velveeta
Boil potatoes and onion and celery seed in broth until tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients and top with bacon, ham, chives, sour cream, whatever your heart desires! So yummy!
My youngest loves chicken noodle soup. Now, I buy generic as frequently as possible but making soup this way is so economical!
Chicken noodle soup
