German Potato Cheese Soup

Recently, our homeschool group gathered to learn a bit about Germany. The main attraction was the German feast!  All participants brought different dishes to our luncheon for everyone to enjoy.  We feasted on German potato salad, German Potato Cheese Soup, Peach Kuchen and German chocolate.  I prepared the soup based on a recipe from Allrecipes with a few adaptations.  My 3 and 5 year old devoured it!  It was really yummy and filling.

German Potato Cheese Soup

4 cups water
3 cups chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
4 medium size potatoes, peeled and dices
2 carrots, finely chopped
1 large onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 cup mayonaise
8 oz processed cheese (such as Velvetta)
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 cup swiss cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large stock pot, combine water, broth, cream of chicken soup, potatoes, carrots, onion and celery.  Bring to a boil, adding salt and pepper.  Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.  Stir occasionally.
Gradually add mayonaise, whisking smooth.  Add cheeses (Velvetta, cheddar and swiss).  Stir until melted - about 5 minutes.

This also freezes nicely.
