The Best 5-Ingredient Potato Soup from Your Pantry

How do you feel about a savory potato soup that comes together in less than 20 minutes, and makes the kitchen smell amazing?

Well, well, well. Do I have a recipe for you.

This is the perfect “I’m so hangry I can’t think straight and I need food in mah belly right now!” type of recipe.

I came up with this soup one afternoon when Jedd and I were knees-deep in deadlines and orders and we needed food that was fast.

I needed food that was easy.

I needed food that would make our 10-minute lunch break feel like an hour in front of a roaring fire.

I needed potato soup.

Right about now, I bet you could use some too.

And the best thing is, since we’re all hunkered down in our domiciles, I bet you have everything on hand to make this lightly spicy soup.

The tang of the hot sauce hits the back of my throat, and a smile appears on my face.

And then the spoon goes into the soup bowl for more.

And more.

Serve this up with your favorite slice of homemade bread and feel the comfort warm you to your bones.
