Step 5: Add heavy cream, milk, potatoes, salt, and peppers.

Allow soup mixture to thicken while occasionally stirring.

Step 6:  Allow soup to simmer and thicken until potatoes are well-cooked, approximately 25-35 minutes.

Scoop out half of the soup ingredients and blend until smooth. Mix back into soup.

Step 7:  Scoop out approximately 1/2 of the soup into blender, then pulse until smooth and mix back into soup. (An immersion blender also works well for this, but mine no longer works. If you are looking for a new blender, I highly recommend the Ninja!)
