Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced bite size
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups nonfat or 1% milk, divided
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions:

1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, sauté onions and celery in oil until onions are clear.

2. Add the potatoes, broth, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 15 to 25 minutes.

3. In a small bowl, stir together cornstarch and 1/4 cup of milk until smooth. Add remaining milk. Stir into the potato mixture.

4. Cook and stir until thickened and heated through, about 5 minutes. Do not boil.
