Creamy Cheesy Potato Soup

Recipe Type: Soup, Potatoes, Cheese
Yields: 6 servings
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min


Ingredients:

4 large potatoes peeled and quartered
2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
1 medium onion, quartered
1 (14-ounce) can vegetable or chicken broth
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups milk, divided
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon dill weed
1 cup sour cream
3 cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon chili pepper or to taste


Preparation:

In a large soup pot over medium-high heat, add potatoes, carrots, onion, and vegetable or chicken broth. Cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from heat.

While vegetables are cooking, make cream sauce. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter; add flour, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Add milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat. Add cheddar cheese and dill weed. Stir until cheese is melted. Set aside.

In a food processor or blender, in small batches, puree potato mixture with some of the milk. Pour blended potato mixture back into the soup pot. Add the cheese sauce, sour cream, remaining milk, salt, pepper, and chili pepper. Stir until thoroughly blended. Return to medium heat and heat until warm. Remove from heat and serve in soup bowls.

Makes 6 servings.
