Cheesy Potato Soup

I got this recipe from Dish Delish. I LOVE all soups, but especially potato and tortilla and was excited to try this when I saw it. It was really good...even Ella ate hers up and she can be particular about her potatoes lately. We topped with some shredded cheddar cheese.

* 4 cups chicken broth
* 6-7 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
* 1/4 cup onion, minced
* 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
* 1/4 teaspoon white pepper (I just used black)
* 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
* 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into chunks (I used 1/3 fat)
I also added a couple shakes each of onion powder, salt, and garlic salt. And lots of black pepper at the end.

1. Combine broth, potatoes, onion, and spices.
2. Boil on medium heat until potatoes are tender.3. Smash a few of the potatoes to release their starch for thickening.
4. Reduce to low heat.
5. Add cream cheese.
6. Heat, stirring frequently, until cheese melts.
*also some good add-ins are cheddar cheese and scallions on top, a mild Italian sausage mixed in, corn, bacon, chives or carrots.
*Extra good served in a bread bowl!
