The Absolute Best Potato Soup

Dish Description
This is the absolute best and easiest potato soup. I never liked potato soup until I made this for my wife. Everyone I have shared it with loves it. It is quick, easy, and good on a nice winter day.
Ingredients
  • 1 (49.5 fluid ounce) can chicken broth, divided
  • 1 (1 ounce) package country style gravy mix (such as McCormick┬«)
  • 6 cups peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 (1/2 inch thick) slices deli ham, diced

Directions
  • Pour 1 cup of the chicken broth, and the contents of the gravy mix packet, into a small bowl. Whisk well to combine.
  • Combine potatoes, carrot, onion, ham, and remaining chicken broth in a large soup pot; bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, and turn down to a simmer. Whisk in the broth and gravy mixture. Simmer soup for one hour.
