    The 2nd time I made this soup…. I pureed all of the potatoes instead of leaving them diced. I also peeled them before boiling as it was a lot easier than trying to peel them afterwards.

    I don’t use nearly as much cream as the recipe specifies. And I used an entire cup of jalapenos instead of 1/4th.

    I’ve made two batches of this soup and am going to make another one after my trip to the grocery store today. I LOVE IT!
