This recipe for Potato Cheese soup is a favorite in our house! So easy to make and so comforting and delicious! This is made with just a few simple ingredients and in less than 30 minutes, you will have a delicious hot soup.

The weather is warming up a bit here in California, just in time for the spring break season. But we still have some cool evenings. For these nights, I love to make this tasty, creamy potato cheese soup.
This is one of my favorite soups to make when I want to warm things up. This soup is very versatile too! You can top it with cooked bacon bits and sour cream for more of a baked potato soup. I love to serve in little crock bowls, like these.
Making this Potato soup is so easy and you just need a few ingredients that you likely have on hand.
Potato Cheese Soup Ingredients
Potatoes – I recommend using Russet Potatoes for this soup. Round white potatoes can also work well.
Celery – The celery adds a nice subtle flavor and the fiber adds body to the soup. You can also use jicama if you like.
Cheese – I always go with mild cheddar, but you can use a sharp cheddar or white cheddar too!
How to Make Potato Cheese Soup
All you have to do is through some peeled potatoes in a pot and add a few ingredients once they are cooked. The flavors blend together well to make a wonderful comfort food soup.
It tastes like it took a long time, but it is actually one of the easiest soup recipes you will find!
Stir often and continue cooking soup about 15 more minutes over medium-low heat (soup will thicken).
So warm and comforting and this is also super inexpensive to make.
