Red Potato Soup

We have another Potato Soup recipe for you! This one just as good, but different from the last. It was found here, so I give the credit to them! Both Howe sisters that have made and tried this have loved it! We hope you will too!

2 Tbs. butter
1 medium onion (finely chopped)
3 garlic clove buds (minced)
4 C. red potatoes (diced)
2 tsp. salt
3 C. chicken broth
2 C. milk
4 oz. cream cheese (softened)

grated cheese
green onions (chopped)
bacon (cooked and crumbled)

**In a large pot, saute the butter and onion until tender. Add garlic, salt and red potatoes. Continue to cook about 10 minutes.
**Add chicken broth and 1 1/2 c. of milk. Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 12 minutes.
**While potatoes are cooking, put the remaining 1/2 c. milk and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Blend with mixer until smooth. Then add the to the soup.
**Once the potatoes are tender, smash a few of them with a potato masher to help thicken the soup.
**Serve with cheese, onion, and bacon.
