The recipe sounded interesting so I tried it. It was wonderful, but as I was making it I made a couple of changes. Instead of adding water to cook the potatoes I used 1 can of chicken broth. I excluded the can of whole kernel corn but did used 1 can of cream-style corn. I used New Mexico Hatch chilies which were frozen and chopped 3/4 cup. Instead of evaporated milk, I used heavy whipping milk. Instead of regular salt I used Himalayan salt with fresh crushed course black pepper. It was marvelous! The soup was tasty, creamy with a nice kick to it. The soup was served with homemade buns and was perfect for a nice snowy day like today in front of the fireplace.
This was a nice soup but probably will not make again. thanks
Excellent soup. My wife was crazy about it and ate all the leftover soup for lunch the next day.
