Ladle the soup into bowls, dollop sour cream, sprinkle with remaining bacon bits, cheese and chives.
will try this recipe very soon. sounds good. there is a small omision of the word flour in the directions section of the recipe. I also put a large dollup of original cheese dip on my cooked spinach and mix it up. great for quick snack or side with dinner.
I make my potato soup homemade, potatoes, bacon, onions, black pepper. Once the potatoes are boiled and done. I add a little milk, just enough to turn it white. If ya boil the milk too long. It will curdle up. I cut some of the potatoes small, for when they boil down, it make the soup thick…I also have some potatoes big. I slice the onions small, and some big, bacon is sliced in 1 inch sections.
And always use cracked black pepper…and if ya want a little spice, put a fresh pepper in it.
Once its done don’t forget,Gordo’s Original cheese dip..its good.
You put the cheese dip in ,after you put the soup in your bowl. The soup must be hot in the bowl..so the dip can melt in it..what I do is, as it melts in the hot potato soup, I stir it up, man its good with that Gordo’s cheese dip..I just thought, I’d let ya know..thank you. Ronnie Staats…
Two errors in the directions section. As already pointed out the word flour is omitted, also it says add spices one is pepper but the second
I assume is 1 tablespoon of what?
I am going to try this and guess what the tablespoon might be.
