Rainy Day Soup

So, it has been rainy here in Seattle. Really, I know we have a reputation for that, but in the two and a half years I have lived here I have not experienced the rainy day blues this bad till now. I am the biggest lazy bum. So to go with that, I will post a delicious recipe for some soup. It is an easy, lazy soup. Not too much fuss. It is from a cookbook I got from my mother-in-law. With a few modifications it has easily become one of our favorites. It is the "Gravy Bend" cookbook. It is a compilation of recipes from people in her community. So since you will be unable to get it from a store I will post some of my favorite recipes here on occasion. We ran across this one a few months ago and boy was it a find. So with out further adu, here it is.

Nacho Potato Soup
from Myrlann Clement, modified by me.

4 or so potatoes diced (more or less depending on how hearty you like your soup)
1 can drained corn
1 can Rotel tomatoes or diced tomatoes with green chilies
2 Cups Water
2 Cups Milk
4 oz of Velveeta Cheese or 2 cups cubed Velveeta cheese

In a pan combine potatoes, corn, tomatoes, and water. Mix well. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer till potatoes are tender

Add milk and cheese and stir till cheese is melted.

That is it. Easy peasy! Enjoy! Serve with some Rhodes rolls, or have someone pick up some bread at the store if you don't want to go through the trouble of making rolls. It is delicious!
