The Best Potato Soup (Ever)

This recipe has become one of my favorites and has been a total hit when made for parties and events! It's a thick and creamy potato soup with a little bit of a kick. Plus, it's pretty easy to make which motivates me to make it again and again. I originally found the recipe here, but here is my version. Enjoy! :)

4 cups of Chicken Broth
4 cups of peeled and cubed potatoes (2-2.5 large potatoes or 4-5 smaller potatoes)
1/4 cup Minced Onions
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground or crushed red pepper
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese 

Salt & pepper to taste
Shredded cheese
Bacon bits 

Step 1: Wash and peel potatoes  

Step 2: Cube/cut potatoes 

Step 3: Combine cubed potatoes, minced onion, spices, and chicken broth in pot. Then let boil on MEDIUM heat for about 20 minutes until potatoes are tender 

Step 4: Smash a few potatoes with whisk to release their starch for thickening 

Step 5: Reduce to LOW heat and mix in a small piece of cream cheese at a time until it is melted in the mixture. Then continue adding more until you've used the entire cream cheese package

Garnish with shredded cheese and bacon bits, then stuff your face with this amazing soup!
