Swanson Cheesy Potato SoupI received samples from Swanson® for review purposes. All opinions are my own!

Baby its cold outside.  🙂  I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are, but it is getting cold here in Utah.  The leaves have fallen off the trees, the sky is starting to get darker and all signs up Winter are creeping in.  The weather report says that we are supposed to get our first snowfall on Thursday.  This is the time of the year where I like to eat soup for every meal because my body just can’t seem to shake off the winter chill.  There is nothing better than a warm bowl of soup to make your tummy happy.

I love making soup.  My favorites are Chicken Noodle Soup and Cream Potato Soup.  My husband came home from work this week with a large bag of potatoes so I instantly started craving a delicious bowl of  Cheesy Potato Soup.  This recipe is my kids favorite that we make every year on their birthday.  I love  using the Swanson starters because not only do they make the recipe delicious, but it is so simple to make.   They Swanson creamy starters are perfect for potato soup and I always add Chicken broth for extra flavor.  This recipe is shown to make 4 servings.  We double our recipe so we can have leftovers!  Enjoy!
