What you'll need
A heaping four cups of potatoes, cubed (today I used red, but you can you use your potato of choice)
1/4 cup finely diced onion
4 cups broth (I used vegetable broth)
8 ounces of cream cheese
Start by preparing your potatoes, I like to leave the peal on the potatoes, but that's a personal preference, so feel free to peal the potatoes first if you like that better.
Add the broth, onion and potatoes to a sauce pan and bring to a boil, salt and pepper to taste. Boil for 20 minutes or so, and then smash a few of the potatoes against the side of the bowl to release some of the starches.
While the potatoes are boiling, cube your cream cheese. Reduce heat to a simmer and add the cream cheese, stirring occasionally, cooking until thoroughly melted.
That's it! You're ready to serve, pour it out, then top with shredded cheese, some chopped chives or bacon if you wish.
