  • 6 c. water
  • 7 tsp. chicken bouillon
  • 2 packages 8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
  • 4 c. diced potatoes, peeled or unpeeled (diced into ¾ in. pieces)
  • 1 ½ c. fully cooked ham, cubed
  • ½ c. chopped onion (see Notes below)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dill weed


  • In a large pot, combine the water and bouillon.
  • Add the cream cheese; cook on medium-low heat until the cream cheese is melted, stirring frequently. (I like to use a whisk for this.)
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Simmer, uncovered, for 18-20 minutes or until the potatoes and onions are tender.


  • Vidalia Chop Wizzard - I love using this handy tool to dice potatoes and onions quickly! It's one of my favorites.
  • Onion- If preferred, you can substitute 1 ½ tsp. onion powder for the chopped onion.
