Peg's Cheesy Potato Soup

My sister-in-law Peggy made a delicious pot of this soup to add to our Christmas feast and it was WONDERFUL! I even added some of my leftover ham to it the next day and that was great too.

You must give it a try. This is comfort food at its best!

3 c. water
4 chicken bouillon cubes
2 1/2 cups cubed potatoes
1 cup sliced celery
1 c. minced onion
1 cup diced carrot

Boil all together until veggies are tender.

Then add:

8 oz. cubed Velveeta cheese.

Let melt and remove from heat.

2 cups milk
2 cans cream of chicken soup

Heat through until warm.

*I also added leftover ham, cubed, and some frozen (thawed brocoli) when I served it the second time.

Serve with crusty bread...and loosen your belt buckle. You're gonna' want seconds!
