I LOVE easy, cheap recipes!

I found a new recipe for a very yummy soup....Bean-Potato Chowder. It is awesome and very cheap to make (about $6).

1 20 ounce package refrigerated diced potatoes with onions (I chose one with peppers added as well for a little extra flavor)

1 14 ounce can of vegetable broth (I prefer chicken broth...mostly because I searched for 5 minutes for vegetable broth with no success)

3 cups of milk

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1/3 cup of flour

1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed

1 15 ounce can navy beans, drained and rinsed

In a 4 quart pot, combine potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered for 4 minutes. Add milk, bring just to simmering
In a medium bowl, whisk cheese, flour and Italian seasoning together until combined, toss gently to coat. Gradually stir into potato mixture
Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Stir in drained beans, cook and stir for 1 minute

I made biscuits to dip in the soup. I love to buy the package of "cheesy garlic biscuits" mix. I get it from package is less than a $1 and you just add water (so easy!), mix and bake for 10 minutes. They are so good!


(Reg and Dad..since you are my only "audience" you must make this recipe for your spouse so that it makes this post worth it:)
