The Best Ever Potato Cheese Soup

Standard

This is a soup my Sister LaRae got from a pot luck at work it was like 32 yrs ago. It is so delicious I had to share it with you. My family loves it so I make it every winter.

POTATO CHEESE SOUP

1 lb of bacon ( I use the thick bacon so I fry about 8 slices ) save the bacon grease!

3 to 4 tomatoes

1 bunch of green onions

5 lbs of potatoes or as much as you like. I like lots of potatoes so I make a big pot that covers 2 burners and do 10 lbs.

8 to 16 cups of Chicken broth

1 can of green chilies. Lg or small  what ever you like or as many as you like.

1 can of milk

and a bunch of cheese ( we like Monetary jack or Mozzarella cheese )

Fresh French bread and butter

 

CS18

This is the thick bacon I buy. So first you fry the bacon then set it aside.

 

CS17

While the bacon is frying I’m cutting up the tomatoes

 

CS16

and green onions to put in the bacon grease.

 

CS15

Then you let it cook for about 20 min.

 

CS19

While I’m frying the tomatoes and green onions in the bacon grease I’m peeling the potatoes and cutting them like this.

 

CS20

Now I put like 8 cups of water then I put 4 tbs of the chicken broth powder and whisk away. You can put it to your liking you can also use canned broth what ever you like.

 

CS14

So I have the potatoes cooking til tinder.

 

CS7

Chop the bacon

 

CS6

grate the cheese

 

CS8

Here I have the green chilies and the can of milk waiting to be put in the soup.

After the tomatoes and green chilies are done add them to the boiling potatoes and Chicken broth.

Then add the green chilies and bacon to the soup.

When the potatoes are tender and ready to eat add the milk and some cheese.

Have a bowl of cheese ready so people can put cheese in their own bowls to there liking.

Last Nights Dinner 10/03/12

Standard

 

 

Well we had Pasta with Chicken and white sauce. But I did not make the white sauce from scratch I used it from a jar.

Pasta

Butter

Garlic

Chicken

Salt and Pepper

Green Onions

White Sauce

 

 

First I started the pasta in a pot with a lid. Here I melted the butter and added some garlic to it.

 

 

Yes I do add garlic and lots of it yummy!

 

 

I had 2 Chicken Breast that I had boiled the other day so I shredded it and put it in the skillet with the butter and garlic.

 

 

After I added the Chicken to the butter and garlic I added salt and pepper to it and let it heat up.

 

 

Then I added the Pasta to the boiling water.

 

 

I cut up the green onions with my Pampered Chef knife and it works awesome 🙂 And there is my White sauce I got it from Walmart.

 

 

After 11 min. I drained the pasta and put it back in the pot.

 

 

Then I added the white sauce, chicken and the green onions.

 

 

Then I stirred it altogether and the family loved it!!! Now I have to tell you I have made the sauce from scratch before but right now I am working 2 jobs so I used the jar sauce and it was just fine.

Thank you so much for reading my blog have an awesome day!

My Friend Robin’s Chili

Standard

Well because I cook this in the crock pot. The night before I cooked the hamburger. So I would not have to do it in the morning. Because I get up at 6:00 anyways for work. I love my sleep so I did it the night before 🙂

 

So after the meat is all fried or browned I put in some taco seasoning in the meat. Now you can use a Rotisserie Chicken instead of hamburger meat. Then I put it in the refrigerator for the night. Then the next morning I put it all together 🙂

 

Now here is everything that goes in it excepted the hamburger.

 

So the next morning I heated up the hamburger in the microwave then put it in the crock pot.

 

Then I put in one can of black beans.

 

And one can of pinto beans.

 

And 2 cans of white beans.

 

I chopped up 1 bunch of green onions and put them in.

 

Now for the cilantro I put one bunch. You can put 1/2 of a bunch or to your liking. We like cilantro so to our liking we put one whole bunch 🙂

 

Now put in a can of green enchilada sauce.

 

And 1/2 of a jar of salsa verde.

 

Then I stirred the chili.

 

Then I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth.

 

Now it’s time for the spices. Cumin, Chili powder, red pepper flakes, Salt and pepper. Put all to your liking!

 

Oh yes and we can not forget the Garlic lol I put about 3 spoon fulls of minced garlic. I could have put more to my liking. So put to your liking 🙂

 

 

 

Then stir it all together put a lid on it keep it on low. Everything is already cooked we just want to marry all the flavors for a yummy chili.

 

When it’s done like 6 to 8 hours later here it is.

 

Then add some grated cheese to it any kind. This one is Monterey jack Cheese.

 

You can have it with some chips like I did or some Mexican corn bread. I did not get home til after 8 or I would have made some Mexican corn bread 🙂

 

And here is the left overs. I filled to Mason Jars. I love me some Mason Jars. This weekend I went and bought more Mason Jars 🙂

Here is the recipe:

Hamburger or Rotisserie Chicken

1 can of black beans

1 can of pinto beans

2 cans of white beans

1 can of green enchilada sauce

1/2  Jar of salsa verde

1 Bunch of green onions

1 or 1/2 of cilantro

1/2 cup of chicken broth

Cumin to your liking

Chili powder to your liking

Red pepper flakes to your liking

Salt and pepper to your liking

Garlic to your liking

Cook in crock pot all day 🙂

To have with the Chili:

Cheese

Chips

or

Mexican corn bread

Enjoy!! 🙂

Thank you so much for reading my blog I hope you enjoyed it have an awesome week!

Spanish Rice

Standard

My friend Danielle gave me a recipe she got from her Mom. I did a little change to it. But then I might change it because I do not have everything it calls for 🙂 Or I add more things to it so this is Danielle’s Mom’s and Mine put together!

1/2 stick of butter

1 1/2 cups of rice

Garlic

3 cups of water now you can add chicken broth powder or use already made chicken broth.

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 Small can of green chiles

2 green onions

1/2 bunch of cilantro

Here is goes!

So first I start out melting the butter then I stir in the rice and garlic. Fry it til it is light brown. Then I add the water and chicken broth powder a tbsp for each cup of water. Also at this point I put in the tomato sauce and the can of green chilies. After it comes to a boil.

I turn it to Med heat cover it and set the timer for 20 min. Then I cut up the green onions and the cilantro to add when it is done.

Here it is with everything added. But I do have to e tell you I did not use the tomato sauce because I did not have any or I would have used it. But it tasted great without it too. Oh yes and because of the chicken broth I do not add salt well I do add salt to my plate. I get in trouble when I add salt to the dish. It will taste great to me but to salty for everyone else.

I hope you liked my blog and will try the recipe. Have a great day!
