Creamy Ham and Potato Soup

This soup is the BEST.  Seriously, please make this for supper tonight.  It really is that good.  Now I just need to figure out how to double this next time since we downed it way too fast!  The inspiration came from Ma Nouvelle Mode.

Creamy Ham and Potato SoupPotato and Ham Soup

  • 5 cups diced potatoes
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 2 – 3 cups diced turkey ham
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese

Bring potatoes, broth, ham, garlic, and spices to a boil.  Continue to boil over medium heat until potatoes are tender.  If you’re cool enough to own a potato masher, use it to smash up about half of the potatoes.  If you’re like me and not so cool, take the more time consuming route and use a fork.  This helps thicken up the soup without wasting time on a flour roux!  Reduce heat and cube the cream cheese in.  Stir over the heat until the cream cheese is melted and mixed in.
