cheddar potato soup

stay warm with this hearty soup. once again, i can't recall which magazine it came from. it has been in MY recipe book for years now. i offer you two time saving tips for this recipe.
#1- i use a hand blender right in the pot to avoid transfering small batches of soup into the blender.
#2- i have used canned potatoes to save time and it still came out AWESOME!


Cheddar Potato Soup

1/3 cup onion, chopped
1/3 cup celery, chopped
2 T butter
4 cups potatoes, diced & peeled
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups milk
¼ t pepper
Dash paprika

*Sauté onion & celery in butter until tender. Add potatoes and broth; bring to boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer 10-15 min or until potatoes are tender. Puree small batches in blender until smooth. Return to pan. Stir in cheese, milk, and paprika. Simmer until cheese is melted. Serve with croutons.

Serves 8
