Bacon Potato Chowder (adapted from cdkitchen.com)
I have seen all over pinterest lately baked potato soup. But I didn't want a soup base. I wanted something oh so creamy. I found it, and then of course made it my own. Also, this is a one pot meal. Here we go:
1 pound bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup chopped onions
2 cloves garlic minced
4 cups diced potatoes
2 cups water (I used 2 1/2 c.)
1 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream
3 cups milk
(optional garnish: cheddar cheese and extra bacon)
In a large pot, cook bacon until brown.
Add onion and garlic and cook until tender.
Add water and potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender
Reduce heat to medium low.
Add soup, sour cream, and milk. Mix well.
Continue cooking and stirring until thoroughly heated.
