Quick tips to making the best soup

  • Watch the heat with this soup. The flour will make the broth thick along with the starches from the potatoes. This can cause the bottom of the soup to start burning if the heat is too high and you are not keeping an eye on the recipe. Lower the heat and let the chicken potato soup cook a little longer, it’ll be worth the weight in the end.
  • Cut or grate your own cheese for this recipe. Do not use pre-shredded cheese.
