    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I freeze a couple cups leftover mashed potatoes from different meals each time to have for this soup! this is great without the ham, but I like to add it in, we love lots of spice so I add in 2 jalapeno peppers with the onions, but that is only optional, serve with crusty bread for a filling main meal ---- this soup is delicious, you know I wouldn't take the time to post anything that's not, so please enjoy! :)

      Excellent. I actually had Green Chile Mashed Potatoes on hand and used them in the soup. It was a hit at the "Soup Party" we took it to and we will definitely make it again.

      Absolutely amazing soup! I didn't add in the chili powder and I used cubed already cooked potatoes instead of mashed potatoes. Oh yes and I omitted the mushrooms. That said, this soup was amazing! We loved the flavor and I was sad to see it gone. Thanks for the great recipe!

      OH KITTENCAL! This soup is to die for! Creamy and extremely tasty! Definitely a rib sticking and hearty soup, almost a chowder in consistency! I omitted the chili powder as my DH doesn't like anything hot. So Good! It was more labor intensive for me as I didn't have any left over mashed potatoes so I had to make them while the onions were cooking. GREAT! BRAVO! :yummy: Thanks for posting! The recipe was tagged in the "Belly Warmers: Soups And Stews - January '09 Event."
