The Ultimate Loaded Potato Soup

We love soups. Soups are perfect for staying warm inside when it’s cold outside. I have shared a few soup recipes here on the blog. At the beginning of my journey as a food blogger, I decided to share my Spanish-style Beef Soup with you, which is one of the most requested in my household. I also shared my mom’s and my son’s favorite Tomato Soup. Today I’m making one of my favorite soups: Loaded Potato Soup.

This potato soup is the perfect way to relax after a long day. It’s perfectly rich and creamy.
