    Smile Cream Cheese Potato Soup

    Cream Cheese Potato Soup

    Yield
    12 servings (about 3 quarts)


    Ingredients
    6 cups water
    7 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
    2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, cubed
    1 package (30 ounces) frozen cubed hash brown potatoes, thawed
    1-1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dill weed

    Directions

    In a Dutch oven, combine the water and bouillon. Add cream cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 18-20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.


    When served, I add bowls of green onions, sour cream, grated cheddar cheese and Bacon Bits.....this is an awesome soup and when the weather gets cool, we eat it about every 2 weeks! YUMMMMM!!

    I really like potatoe soup. But the cream cheese in this recipe is a new twist for me. I'll have to try this one. Thanks.

    After I make this, I put it in the crock pot on warm and we usually eat on it the whole weekend!! If needed or if you can't wait long enough (like us), thicken with some instant mashed potatoes! Make sure and thaw the frozen taters! They can be quite crunchy otherwise..........
