This is the absolute best and easiest potato soup. I never liked potato soup until I made this for my wife. Everyone I have shared it with loves it. It is quick, easy, and good on a nice winter day.

I only gave this a 4 because although it was very easy, it wasn't as thick as I like. So, to make it better and a little easier, I used 4 cans of diced potatoes and then made a roux with 1/2 cup butter and 6 T. flour cooked together, then added it to the soup. It made it as thick as I like it and delicious!!!!

This a great recipe! It turned out great the first time (I've never been successful making soup from scratch before). You can also add 1 cup of heavy cream and 1/2 stick of butter to enhance the taste and texture. Additionally, use a smallish onion instead of a large one so onion flavor doesn't overpower the potato.
