Jackie, your not kidding when said it's a meal! I used red pepper as that is what I had and for the milk I used fat free evaporated. Skipped the butter and cooked everything in the water that I added a bit of chicken base too. I very much liked that the spuds suffered a split personality in this soup. Some dissolved thickening the soup and some remained in well cooked chunks. Yummy :D
It was ok. Had all ingredients on hand.
Absolutely wonderful recipe. Of course me being from Louisiana I had to kick it up a notch by adding cajun seasoning, trinity (onions, celery, green peppers, parsley), Tasso (Smoked Meat). I also made it on the lighter side by using turkey ham and turkey tasso. Sooo yummy!!
