Potato Soup (recipe exchange)

I received this recipe from an E-mail recipe exchange today and it sounds REALLY good.

Potato Soup


- 1 Shallot - Diced

- ½ - 1 yellow onion – Diced

- 4-5 Cloves Garlic – Crushed

- 1 Stick Butter

- 1 Tablespoon  Chili powder

- 1 Teaspoon each Basil and Thyme

- 2 Bay Leaves

- Crushed Black Pepper and Sea Salt to taste

- 8-10 Potatoes – Peeled and Diced

- 32 Oz Chicken Stock/Broth

- 1 Pint Heavy Cream

In large stock pot, sauté onions and shallot with 1 stick butter . Add crushed garlic and sauté (1-2 minutes). Add Salt, Pepper and Chili powder and stir for another minute. Add diced, peeled potatoes into pot and cover with Chicken stock. Add Bay leaves, Basil and Thyme and simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Using a potato masher, mash to desired consistency (the more you mash, the thicker the soup). Pour in the Cream and allow to simmer another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.

Optional toppings:

- 1 Lb. Bacon – cooked and crumbled

- Diced Green Onion

- Cheddar cheese
