P o t a t o  S o u p

Since we've lived in Toluca we've really gotten into soups. Before I moved here I'd never made soup that didn't come from a can. But now they are one of my specialties, especially the quick, easy kind. So I thought I'd share one of our favorites to help warm you up when the mercury drops.


I N G R E D I E N T S :
3 C. Chicken broth
1 lb. Potato, finely diced
13 oz. Evaporated Skim Milk
2 T. Cornstarch
1 t. hot pepper sauce
1 t. Basil
Salt and pepper (to taste)

"Warm You Up" potato soup

Put broth, potatoes, and optional ingredient in large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the potatoes are soft. With a utensil, mash about half of the potato chunks. Thoroughly mix together cold evaporated milk and cornstarch till there are no lumps. Then gradually whisk the mixture into the soup. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add three dashes of hot sauce, basil, and salt and pepper to taste.
