I like to make potato soup at home a lot. I usually start off by chopping a cup of celery and onions. Then saute them off in a little oil and then I add a can of chicken broth and a few cups of water. Add chicken boulin to taste after stock heats up. Then add your diced potatoes and cook them off inside. When potatoes are done add half n half and let it get to temp. A nice additive is add bacon crumbs for flavor. To thicken, make a rue with a little cornstarch and any leftover half n half. Add slowing and stir in. Let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes and enjoy.
