Ooooooh, this soup was good…

January 14, 2013


We’re settling in to watch the Golden Globes, but I wanted to share this delicious soup that we had tonight. 

Southwestern Potato Soup


1 onion, chopped

4-5 cloves garlic, chopped

1 small can green chiles

2 large peeled russet potatoes, diced

1/2 bell pepper, diced

1 tbsp. cumin

1 tsp. garlic salt

6 cups chicken broth

1 15. oz. can creamed corn

1 15. oz. can diced tomatoes

grated cheese and diced avocado to top


Heat 1-2 tbsp. olive oil in a heavy-bottom soup pot.  Add onion and garlic and cook over medium heat until starting to soften.  Add chilies, potatoes, bell pepper, cumin, and garlic salt.  Cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Add broth and stir to combine.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until potatoes are cooked through.  Add corn and tomatoes and simmer for another five minutes.

Top with cheese and avocado!


Mmmmm…so good!  Sorry, the lighting is HORRIBLE in our house, especially in winter, but trust me when I say that this recipe is a winner.

But not baby-friendly, so Lila had a separate dinner of, among other things, chicken.  Which she apparently likes very, very much:


Seriously, do not take her chicken away from her.  She will cut you.

G’night! Winking smile

    do you ever wonder what Lila will think about your blog? I wonder this for Kay all the time. The soup sounds SO yummy. Enjoy the last of the weekend!

      Ha, Erica, yes– I think about that all the time too! If it’s still even around (pretty big if), I think she’ll like it– I think I would like to look back on a “diary” of what my parents did with me from a day-to-day basis as a baby!
