1 hour Potato Soup

Potato soup is one of my favorite soups. I like it better than mashed potatoes! My family likes their potato soup chunky, if you like it smoother don’t reserve the 2 cups and mash until smooth. The flavor of this soup seems like it has cooked all day! It’s an easy soup to make and will probably be done in less than an hour. We love to put cheese, sour cream, and green onions in the soup! Its FABULOUS, give it a try!
