Cheesy Potato Soup

I love me a good potato soup! Actually I have an addiction for potatoes in general was really looking for a good recipe that's easy to cook, fast meal and low in calories! Look no further!

1 tbsp of butter
1 cup chopped onion (I omitted this, and grated half of an onion instead)
2 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
3 cups chopped red potatoes
1 1/4 cup of milk
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup shredded low fat cheese
1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Add grated onion to pan, sauté 3-5 mins. Sprinkle with flour, stirring for 1 minute constantly with a whisk. Add potatoes, milk, broth, 1/2 cup of water and bring to a boil.
Cover, reduce heat and summer 10 minutes. Add cheese, pepper and cook for another 2 minutes or until cheese melts stirring frequently.

Serve mini ham sandwiches along side for a delicious dinner!
