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.

Ingredients:
* 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.

Directions:
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!
