Creamy Ham and Potato Soup

I found this recipe in one of my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks and I was surprised at how quick, easy and delicious this soup was! It was a big hit with the hubby too!

Creamy Ham and Potato Soup











You start by cooking up a bag of frozen, diced potatoes. Yes,  simple as opening the bag, unless you want to wash, peel and dice your own, and in that case go for it!

 Add your water and onion and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and add the cheese and cream of chicken soup.
Blend in remaining ingredients.
Serve it up with some salad and your favorite bread and you have a happy tummy!
