Is there anything lovelier than soup?
At the end of a long day full of a kajillion tasks and responsibilities, a bowl of soup soothes the rough edges on a frazzled family. Serve it with warm, buttered cornbread fresh from the oven and dinner will be the best part of your day.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 Tbs. butter
- about 4 cups chopped, peeled potatoes
- 2 boxes chicken broth
- 2-3 cups diced ham
- 1/2 lb. Velveeta
- salt and pepper, to taste
Cook the onion in the butter till it’s soft in a large soup pot. Add in the potatoes and the chicken broth. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. Turn down the heat.
Stir in the ham. Add the Velveeta. You can use a knife to cut it or just tear it up with your hands and drop the pieces in, which is the way I do it. Let the Velveeta melt in the soup, but try not to let the soup boil again. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
