Lynn's Feed an Army Cheese and Potato Soup

This recipe originally came from Nanny J who is Michael's Mom's Dad's Mom, you still with me? Shorter version? Michael's Great Grandmother. She made a much smaller version of this soup but all the same ingredients. Lynn explained to me that when the kids were in highschool, Michael, Michelle, Robert (a friend who lived with them for awhile) and Jackie (Father-in-law) got home from work they wanted something hearty and the original soup wouldn't cut it. So she did what all super women do and adapted it. Go Lynn!

You guy's have to try this soup, oh my gosh. It's not like it's crazy cheesy, it's actually the carrots that make it so orange- but it's so good. I didn't add anything. Make it!

Cheese and Potato Soup

15 potatoes, cubed
3 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
8 carrots, chopped
1 (4 ounces) velveeta cheese
2 cans cream of potato soup
5 tablespoon chicken base
10 slices bacon, crumbled

Melt the butter in a big pot, saute onions, carrots and celery until tender. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil, add the soup and potatoes, stirring often. Add cheese and simmer about 10 minutes over medium/high heat.

Everyone say thank you Lynn- Thank you Lynn.
