Potato and Green Chile Soup

This is a local take on a classic green chile potato soup. Can be garnished with sour cream, chives, green onions, bacon, etc.



Step: 1

Heat butter in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed soup pot over medium heat until melted. Add onion; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in potatoes and cook for 1 minute.

Step: 2

Sprinkle in flour and stir until smooth. Cook for 1 minute, stirring continuously, until browned but not burned. Slowly pour in broth and stir until well incorporated; bring to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring every 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Be sure the soup does not boil.

Step: 3

Stir in chile peppers, milk, cumin, oregano, and salt. Bring to a simmer, then immediately remove from heat; do not allow to boil. Add Monterey Jack cheese and Cheddar cheese; stir until melted. Season with pepper and serve.
