Easiest Potato Soup

Easiest Potato Soup

This is another of my old standbys. My family loves this soup! The kids would eat it every day!
It can be made very healthful, too! Or, you can make it fairly decadent!! Just use "full octane" versions of the fat-free ingredients! The choice is yours!!

This soup is fairly hearty, especially with the garnishes!

It takes less than 30 minutes to have this ladled into your bowls!

Easiest Potato Soup

1 32 oz. frozen hash browns
2 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth (I use fat-free.)

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

onion powder, to taste
1 can cheddar cheese soup (The whole can has about 12.5 grams of fat. This is all the fat in the entire pot of soup!)

Optional garnishes:
a dollop of fat-free sour cream
shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
crumbled bacon or "real" bacon bits (1 slice of heated pre-cooked bacon has 1.5 grams of fat. 1 tablespoon of "real" bacon bits has the same -1.5 grams of fat.)
slices green onions


Stove top:
Pour hash browns into soup pot and cover with broth. Add salt, pepper and onion powder. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in soup. Heat through until smooth and creamy.

Crockpot:

Pour hash browns into crock pot and cover with broth. Add salt, pepper and onion powder. Cook 3 hours on low. Add soup. Cook for another hour on low, if you desire potatoes to be more tender. Otherwise, serve after cheddar soup is heated through.
