Cheesy Cream of Potato Soup

From Michelle

3 medium potatoes

1 tsp. fresh dill or 1/4 tsp. dried dill weed

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 T. margarine or butter

1 T. flour

1/8 tsp. salt

dash pepper

1 can cheddar cheese soup

1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon pieces

Cook bacon.

Peel and cube potatoes and cook them until very soft. In a blender, combine the potatoes and 3/4 cup of the chicken broth. Cover and blend until smooth (add more broth if mixture isn't blending). Set aside.

In a medium saucepan, melt the margarine or butter. Stir in the flour, dill/dill weed, salt and pepper. Add the milk all at once. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubble. Cook 1 minute more. Stir in potato mixture and the remaining broth. Add cheese soup and bacon. If necessary, add milk to make of desired consistency. Cook and stir until heated through and cheese soup is fully incorporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper; although I find that with the bacon I do not need to add much more seasoning.
