Potato Soup

3 lb potatoes, diced
4-5 c chicken broth
6 slices bacon, chopped
2-3 c milk
1 can cheddar cheese soup
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c flour

Brown the bacon in the bottom of a soup pot. When it's crispy, add 1/2 c flour and stir (if you don't want to use the bacon grease you can drain the bacon and add 1/2 c canola or olive oil to the pot). Cook 2-3 minutes. Mix together the cheese soup w/ milk (according to directions on soup can). Add to the pot. Mix well. Whisk in 4c chicken broth. Fold in the cheese, stir until it's melted in evenly. Add the potatoes, then enough milk or chicken broth that the potatoes are all covered. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer until the potatoes are cooked through, stirring occasionally.
