  • Melt butter in large stockpot on medium-high heat. Add leeks; cook 5 min. or until tender, stirring frequently. Add potatoes and water; stir. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 20 min. or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  • Puree with a hand-held blender, right in the stockpot. (Or add, in batches, to a countertop blender; blend until smooth.) Return potato puree to stockpot. Cook on medium heat 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  • Add cream cheese and half-and-half; stir. Cook 3 to 5 min. or just until cream cheese is melted and mixture is blended. Stir in pepper. Sprinkle with chives just before serving.

Serving Suggestion

Balance this rich, hearty soup with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Light Dressing and a whole grain roll for a winter dinner.

Make Ahead

This classic soup is often served cold in the warmer months making it a great make-ahead dish. Just prepare as directed and instead of re-warming after pureeing, chill the soup in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

    This was quite blah until I added salt, ground in some garlic/pepper,, and some parsley. Will not make it again.
