Here's one of my favs, and a recipe from my dear ol' mom. :) Thanks Mom!
Hearty Potato Soup
1 stick butter
8 oz. french onion dip
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans of milk (use the cans from the cream of chicken soup)
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked (save some grease)
1 onion chopped
2 celery ribs
10 potatoes, cubed (or 1 pkg frozen hashbrowns)
Fry bacon in large pot.
Set aside bacon. Using a small amount of grease, saute onion & celery.
Also, it doesn't hurt to have a cute, sleeping baby to keep you company. :)
And the two cans of milk.
I thought I had the dip in my fridge, but turns out it was this. Nick's Aunt Sherri gave it to us when they moved as they were emptying their fridge. Still worked great!
Add the dip.
I usually choose to use these - they taste the same and are way faster. And I work full-time so these are super helpful.
Bring to a boil and simmer.
Add chopped up bacon.
Yum!! Now dig in and enjoy!
