“I forgot all about this recipe until I decided to make this for supper last night. My husband who is a picky eater even liked it! This is a very cheap and easy way to make potato soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup
  • 2 cups milk
  • 14 cup chopped fresh raw onion (optional)
  • 18 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)


  1. Peel and dice potatoes (the smaller you dice, the faster they cook).
  2. Place in pan with enough water to cover potatoes.
  3. Cover and cook potatoes until done.
  4. Drain water and return to pan.
  5. With a potato masher, mash 1/2 of the potatoes (this will serve as your thickener).
