loaded "baked potato" soup

ok girls. i'm completely going out on a limb here. i've never tried this recipe so don't hate me if you hate IT! but come on... microwaved soup? i said easy, but i guess we'll see! yum. i'm just ready for soup. it's legal in september right!?

2 medium baking potatoes, unpeeled
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup milk
3 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled, and divided
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 Tbsp. sliced green onions, divided
1/4 cup sour cream

pierce potatoes; microwave on HIGH 5 min., turning over after 2 1/2 min. cut potatoes into chunks. combine potatoes, broth and milk in large microwaveable bowl. microwave on HIGH 6 min., stirring after 3 min. Slightly crush potatoes with a potato masher.

reserve 2 Tbsp. each of the bacon and cheese and 1 Tbsp. of the onions for topping; set aside. add remaining bacon, cheese and onions to soup.

serve topped with reserved bacon, cheese, onions and sour cream.

Makes 4, 1 cup servings.

I've made this soup before, but not in the microwave, what was I thinking?! It tastes awesome though, especially with the toppings.
