Great hearty soup . . with fresh bread it's a meal in itself. The original recipe came from Keegan's, a local restaurant in Phoenix, however I've made modifications to it over the years. Lighter version can be made by cooking the potatoes in 2 1/4 cups broth.

Very good, this soup has a wonderful combo of flavors, I used one large jalapeno pepper in place of the poblano peppers as that is all I had, also added in cayenne pepper and increased the chicken bouillon, my DH loved this soup, thank you Galley!... Kitten:)

This is so very good! Here's my mods: used Homogenized milk (3.25%) throughout, used 2 red peppers, no poblanos available. Servied it with caesar croutons and it was absolutely delicious. Thanks for posting!
