Hi friends, and Happy Tuesday! I’m back from my blogging break and have lots to post, but since it’s recipe day all over blogland, I thought I’d share one of my favorites: a comfort food that is easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy (minus the lemon). Hope you enjoy! Blessings to each of you today… Jennifer
1 envelope onion soup mix
Salt, pepper, minced garlic to taste
3 chicken bullion cubes (dissolved in 1/3 c. water)
1 can of evaporated milk
1 stick of butter
2 lbs. of Velveeta cheese
Combine potatoes, onion soup mix and seasonings in large stock pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes (or until potatoes are tender). Remove from heat. Do not drain. Mash potatoes in liquid until almost smooth. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until cheese is melted. Soup is ready to serve, or may be kept on low in a crock pot for several hours. Add water if soup is too thick, and add mashed potato flakes if soup is too thin.
Option 1: add a can of green chilies
Option 2: add a can of sliced mushrooms after the potatoes have cooked.
Delicious serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, green onions, and bacon bits.
