Potato Soup

Made with simple ingredients, this Potato Soup is nutritious, flavorful and perfect for busy weeks!


Here’s how you make it:

This potato soup is made with two kinds of potatoes and makes a great, nutritious option for lunch or dinner!


  • 2 strips bacon, diced
  • 1 orange or red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and chopped (I use 2 russet, 1 sweet potato)
  • 1.5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1.5 cups milk (I use skim)
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  1. In a large dutch oven or pot, saute bacon, peppers, onions and potatoes for 5-7 minutes over medium heat.
  2. Add broth and milk and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and let simmer until potatoes are tender (15-20 minutes).
  4. Use an immersion blender (or regular blender) to puree. Feel free to leave some chunks if you’d like.
  5. Add cheese and spices and stir until melted.


You could easily make it vegetarian by omitting the bacon, but I think it adds great flavor!
