"C" is for Cheesy Potato Soup

Cold weather = warm soup in my kitchen!

Cheesy Potato Soup

Makes 6 servings.
Prep time: 5 minutes.
Cook time: ~30 minutes.

  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 1 stick butter
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup flour
  • 16 oz (1 small box) Velveeta
  • ½ cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Cube potatoes with or without skins, boil in a pot until tender (do not overcook), drain
  2. While potatoes are boiling, sauté onions in butter in another large pot
  3. Add flour to onions and butter and stir to thicken
  4. Add enough milk to make the base for the soup and heat until warm
  5. Add cooked potatoes
  6. Add cubed Velveeta and shredded cheese and heat until melted
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
If soup is too thick, add more milk.  If soup is not thick enough, mash some of the potatoes.  If all potatoes are gone and soup base is left, cook more potatoes and use for another meal.


  1. I'm doinng this tomorrow! I have everything for it!What do you serve it with?

  2. This is usually a stand-alone meal for us with steamed veggies or a salad, but I've also served it as a side with roast.

  3. You could have just soup and crackers for something simple!

  4. Oh, I meant to say, what do you serve WITH IT. LOL.
