Queso Blanco Potato Soup

Potato soup is one recipe that I know my crew will love. During cooler weather, I probably make it at least one time a week. I don’t mind because it’s easy, cheap, and filling. Plus, I know it’s one thing I will get no complaints from the auntlings at supper time.

Because of how often I make it, I like adding a few changes so we don’t end up with the exact same bowl o soup every time. Some other versions are baked potato soup, potato soup, Southwestern potato soup, and slow cooker sausage and potato chowder.

Queso Blanco Potato Soup came about one night when I didn’t want to cook what I had planned but knew takeout wasn’t happening either. Potatoes are a staple as are chicken broth and milk. I had some frozen seasoning mix in the freezer and a half a block of Queso Blanco cheese left from another recipe in the fridge.

The end result was a rich, creamy, and cheesy soup with just a bit of heat because the cheese I used had jalapenos. The recipe is easy and so delicious and absolutely perfect for a  cool night’s supper.
