Loaded & Lite Potato Soup

When I came across this recipe on Annie Bakes I knew I had to try it! I am a big sucker for potato soups. This one is quite yummy, rich and creamy in texture, and tastes like a loaded baked potato. You would never think that it is a light soup. Perfect for fall and winter!



Ingredients:
6 red potatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 1/4 cups fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups skim milk, divided
1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 teaspoons green onions, thinly sliced

Directions:
Pierce potatoes with a fork and microwave on HIGH for 13 minutes or until tender. Cut in half; cool slightly and remove potato skins.

While the potatoes cook, heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute 3 minutes. Add broth. Combine flour and 1/2 cup milk; add to pan with 1 1/2 cups milk. Bring to a boil; stir often. Cook 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream, salt and pepper.

Discard the potato skins an coarsely mash potaotes into soup. Reheat if necessary. At this point, my soup was a little thick so I added additional chicken broth to thin it out. Top with cheese, green onions and bacon.

Servings: 4
Points: 5

Christina, the soup sounds amazing and I agree -- it's made even more fabulous by virtue of the fact that it's "lite"! I'm looking forward to adding this recipe to my soup repertoire! Thank you so much for linking up and sharing at "A Little Birdie Told Me..." at Rook No. 17. I hope you'll share more of your culinary talent with us again this week! Jenn
