This made the perfect Base recipe! I did add fresh garlic , more cheese ,more onion and made with smoked sausage for more flavor also i left the potatoes cubed and used potato flakes to thicken it up a bit!
I enjoyed this soup for lunch today. It was quick to make and really easy too. I made one slight change - used beef bouillon because it turned out that I didn't have chicken bouillon. I don't think it affected the taste any as it was great, but the colour may be a bit darker. As mentioned by *Parsley*, I too used an immersion blender. I think next time I would leave some large chunks in the soup just for fun. Thx Cori!
I loved this soup! I especially love that it's made with everyday ingredients that I most always have. I blended it with my immersion blender, leaving just a little bit of chunks for texture. I did used the optional paprika and it was the smoked variety. That added a great extra flavor. Thanx for posting this!
