Semi Homemade Potato Soup

Whenever the grocery store has a sale on Bear Creek soup mixes I always pick some up.  One package makes 8 cups of soup and after I add my touches to it I end up with 9 cups.  The best part is I always have enough leftovers for lunch the next day and one freezer meal for another time.  SCORE!
1 package Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup mix
4 oz cream cheese 
1 cup milk
1 package bacon
2 celery stalks chopped
5 small red or yellow potatoes
1/2 cup chopped green onions, more to taste
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons paprika
Directions:  Cook bacon until slightly crispy and chop when cooled.  In a large pot boil 8 cups of water.  Add potatoes, onions, celery,  3/4 bacon crumbles, and seasoning.  Lower heat and cook for about 15 minutes stirring every couple of minutes.  Add milk and cream cheese and cook for another 5 minutes stirring frequently.  When finished top with remaining bacon and season with extra pepper and paprika if desired.
