Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Creamy Potato Soup is guaranteed to warm you up from the inside, out. It has a rich and creamy taste thanks to the addition of cream cheese.


  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 cups Red Potatoes, cubed and peeled
  • 3 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup Cream Cheese {you can use a little more if you want}
  • Salt and pepper if desired
  • Optional: serve with keilbasa sausage, green onions and bread


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, saute the potatoes in the olive oil until the potatoes start to brown a little. Throw in the garlic and stir for another minute.
  2. Add the chicken stock and lower heat. Allow it to simmer for 30 or 40 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  3. With a potato masher, smash the potatoes inside the pot. This helps release the starch and make it thicker. You want the soup to remain chunky so don't smash too much.
  4. Add the cream cheese and whisk until it melts.
  5. Add salt and pepper to preference
  6. Serve with diced Keilbasa sausage, green onions and a slice of bread!
