Mexican Potato Soup

Hi, it’s Jen from Bakerette


It’s so good to be back again to share with you another fantastic and easy recipe:

Mexican Potato Soup.

This isn’t your ordinary potato soup recipe. Steak and potatoes bring this combo to the table in a whole new way. After all, how can you go wrong with cheese and potatoes? Add Mexican spices into the recipe and you get a killer meal. And if desired, throw in some carne asada and you’ve got a dish made in heaven.

The spices really make this recipe, like cumin, coriander, and cayenne. Instead of the normal Cheddar cheese, use pepper jack for a spicy flare.
