Don’t let the basic ingredients of this soup fool you, because let me tell you, it is quite tasty. Thanks to the onions, pepper and chives you get lots of flavor and the addition of sour cream makes it just creamy enough to be delicious. In fact, my husband who is not really a potato soup fan declares this one to be “pretty good.” And I love that it’s a frugal dish too!
