Recipe Ingredients for Creamy and Delicious Potato Cheese Soup

4 tbsp Butter
1 large onion
3 cloves minced garlic
8 carrots
8 cups chicken broth
5 pounds red potatoes
16 oz cream cheese
12 oz Cheddar Chunk Cheese - Mild / Medium / Sharp /
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup cold water
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for Creamy and Delicious Potato Cheese Soup

  1. Saute the diced leeks, minced garlic, and sliced carrots in the butter over Medium/Low heat until tender. Stir frequently.

  2. In a large pot, bring the chicken broth and cubed potatoes to a boil. The chicken broth should completely cover the cubed potatoes. Add more broth if necessary.

  3. Stir sauteed garlic, leeks and carrots into the large pot with the chicken broth and potatoes.

  4. When potatoes are tender, add thyme and softened cream cheese. Stir well. Remove from the heat when the cream cheese has thoroughly melted.

  5. In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour with 1/2 cup of cold water. Stir well to remove lumps. Add flour mixture to the large pot and stir to thicken soup.

  6. Next, add the grated cheddar to the pot and let it melt slowly with the residual heat. Cheddar burns easily so make sure the heat is off.

  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
