Cheesy Ham & Potato Soup

The valley still isn't quite ready to have your windows wide open and enjoying the sound of helicopters full of news crews filming the rising river.  And I had milk in my refrigerator that needed to be used up before it's expiration date so today it means soup.

Cheesy Ham & Potato Soup

1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk, 2% works fine
4 medium potatoes, diced
2 cups ham, cubed
4 oz Pepper Jack cheese

4 oz Cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Heat broth and milk.  Add in potatoes and cook until almost tender.  Add in ham and cook for another 10 minutes.  Add in cheese and stir until melted.  Add in paprika, salt and pepper.
