  • Add the chicken broth and the cubed potatoes. Slice the smoked sausage into bite size pieces, and add to the soup. Simmer over medium heat until the potatoes are soft.

  • Using a potato masher, lightly mash the potato mixture to break up the cubes a little bit, but not mashing as completely as you would for mashed potatoes.

  • Add the cubed cheese, and stir until melted. Stir in the evaporated milk. Season with black pepper. The soup should be pretty thick, but you can thicken it further with a paste of cornstarch and water. Use about 1 tablespoon of cornstarch at a time, and add it to the soup until you have reached the desired thickness.
