A Warm Delight

Need a delicious recipe on these cold days to warm you up?  I always look recipes up on allrecipes.com and find the best ones!  They have an iphone app which is very convenient!  I usually alternate the recipes a little to my liking.  The recipe I'm about to share is based off of this one.

The Best Potato Soup Ever

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup diced onions
3-4 cups peeled and diced potatoes
2 1/2-3 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

Directions:
1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.  Cook onion in butter until softened.
2.  Stir in potatoes and broth.  Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
3.  Remove pan from heat and use a fork to mash the potatoes leaving a few chucks for texture.  Pour mixture into a pot and return to medium heat.  Stir in the cream, cheese, dill, pepper, salt and cayenne.  Bring to a low boil and cook, stirring until thickened.
4.  Serve in a bread bowl or with some delicious mountain bread!  Enjoy!

(Recipe makes enough for about 4-5 people so you may want to double it if you have a larger group!)
