    With fall quickly approaching, I'm looking to expand my collection of comforting soups. Though I have not tried this one yet, it looks like it has great possibilities.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut cleaned and unpeeled potatoes into large cubes (about 1 to 1 1/2 inches). Bring water and potatoes to a low boil, cooking until the potatoes are tender.
    2. 2
      While potatoes are cooking, place oil and onions in a skillet and cook until onions are cooked soft and translucent but not brown. Add peppers, cumin, basil and garlic and continue cooking until peppers are tender, about 6-9 minutes.
    3. 3
      Place potatoes and three quarters of the water into a blender or food processor, reserving the remaining water. Blend until smooth.
    4. 4
      Return processed potatoes to pot, adding peppers and milk. Use reserved water to thin the soup further if desired. Warm over low heat until it is ready to serve.
    5. 5
      Garnish with scallions or cilantro if desired.

      Pretty good but needed a little something more. I think using vegetable broth in place of some or all of the water would have been good. I didn't have anaheim chilies, so I used more bell peppers and added 3 jalapenos. I left out the milk and kept all the water. I also used a potato masher to mash the potatoes instead of blending them.

      This soup was very good. I roasted the anaheim chilies before chopping and adding them to the soup. Also, I used an immersion blender to puree the potatoes and water right in the pot (no blender to wash). This soup is VERY spicy with the 1-1/2 cups of chilies. I love spicy food, but next time I would reduce the amount of chilies to accomodate my family's tastes. Thank you for sharing this delicious soup.

      Very yummy, even though I screwed up and got poblano chilies instead of anaheim. Comfort food, but spicier.
