How to make potato soup

This is probably one of my all-time favorite soups to make. I’m pretty sure it ties right up there at the top with homemade chicken noodle soup. And it’s so easy to make. It takes few ingredients and a short amount of time to have a delicious, soul-warming soup to put on the table. Serve with biscuits, cheese and crackers, or oyster crackers.

Potato Soup
  • 3 medium to large potatoes, peeled and cut into about 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pint homemade or 1 can store bought chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons schmaltz, butter, or oil for sautéing the onions
  • 1/2 cup cheese, optional but good! (I used store bought white American queso)
Sauté onions in the fat of your choice. I like schmaltz I rendered from chicken fat, but any nice tasting fat will do. Sauté just till they start to turn translucent but not brown.

Add your cubed potatoes and the broth and water. Add salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat and let simmer until potatoes are tender.

Add in the cream of celery soup. Stir it in well till all lumps are blended in. Bring it to a simmer.

Add the cheese of your choice.

Serve piping hot with crackers or biscuits.

Here's a video I did demonstrating the potato soup I made!
