She notes, "I sometimes add an extra cup or so of sliced potatoes. It ends up being closer to a cream of potato soup consistency which I really like.
"My dad likes chunks in his so I cook up an extra potato or two in another pot, cut it up, and then let him add it to his soup."

This is THE BEST potato soup recipe!!! It's fairly simple, with a short list of ingredients, but the taste is just perfect!! I love the hint of dill, the sweetness of the onions, and the fact that everything about this soup makes the potatoes the "star"! :D Try it, try it!! My children love it too! My rating: 10/10
Also: I leave mine chunky. I skip the blender part and just mash the potatoes a little in the pan with a masher before adding the milk mixture.
Using water instead of chicken broth: If I don't have any chicken broth on hand, I just use water, adding a sprinkling of garlic salt, lemon pepper seasoning, and paprika. Delicious!!
