RECIPE: Loaded Baked Potato Soup

This is my really fast and easy dinner when I don't know what to make but I'm starving. It tastes just like a loaded baked potato, and it's really not too bad for you.  In this picture, I used those "real" bacon bits, but usually I use actual bacon chopped into small pieces.


Loaded Baked Potato Soup

1 bag frozen potatoes
1 quart chicken broth
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup skim milk
1 cup fat free sour cream
Toppings, like shredded cheese, bacon, chives, green onion, etc.

Heat soup pot over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add the onion and cook until onion is soft. Meanwhile, put the potatoes in a colander and run under hot water to thaw a little. When onions are soft (not brown) add the chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are soft (usually less than 5 or 10 minutes). Sometimes I puree the soup at this point, but you don't have to. Stir in sour cream. Ladle into bowls and add your toppings.
