Jalopeno Potato Cheese Soup #RecipeOfTheDay #recipe #mommy #homemade #homsteading

The beauty of this soup is it’s versatility. Whether you substitute the potatoes for broccoli, add ham cubes, or refrain from adding the jalopeno’s this soup can be made in a few different ways with just minor changes.

4 tablespoons of butter

1/4 Cup of Flour

3 Cups of Milk

2 Red Potatoes

3 Cups of Cheese (I use graded Cheddar, but a combination of any cheeses can be used for added flavor.)

Salt, Pepper, Creole Seasoning, Red Crushed Pepper Flakes, and chopped pickled jalapeno peppers *All to taste, no measurements*

Boil potatoes until soft before starting.

Melt butter into a large pot, sprinkle in flour and whisk while cooking for a minute. Pour in milk and season to your liking with salt, pepper, onion powder, and crushed red pepper. For an added boost of flavor I always use Creole seasoning. It’s my friend. While the soup simmers for about 20 minutes cut up the potatoes and jalapenos and add to the soup for the last 5 minutes of simmering. Add in cheese and cook until it’s melted and combined. Stir for a few minutes and enjoy!

***This soup is very good, but it needs to be served with something to balance out the potato and cheese. Serve with a ham steak, grilled chicken breast, or a crisp green salad.***
