Hey all, here's a potato soup I made up today....turned out pretty good :O

in large saucepan, boil 1-1/2 to 2 cups water plus 3/4 white onion, chopped,w/ 1 can cream of chicken soup (low sodium, etc is okay) & 1/2 cup milk

-add 1 finely chopped zuchinni (i left the skin on it)
-3 medium/large red potatoes, chopped (peel em or not, i peeled 2 and left the skin on one)
-dash of salt & pepper to taste
-2 tbsp flour (mix it in the soup well to avoid clumps)
-dash of rosemary

basically, let this simmer about 30 min or until potatoes cooked, then puree and return to boil for a few minutes and add real bacon or bacon bits

when it's done, add shredded cheese and/or sour cream

well, i hope it works out....I just threw the stuff together so it may require some tweeking to meet your tastes.

Sounds great, except the zucchini...otherwise with the bacon and sour cream, it's just like a baked potato!

Try substituting the bacon for spicy sausage. :D

Chorizo would kick it up a notch.

yeah, you could also add corn or shredded carrots if you want--possibilities abound.
