How to make Potato Soup


This is a bare bones, yet hearty recipe for a simple potato soup. Tweak it how you like. Some of my friends for example like to garnish with shredded cheese. Use your imagination.
  1. Peel and dice the potatoes; boil until fork-tender. Drain the potatoes and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter over medium heat, add the onions and sautee until golden. Add the flour and mix well.
  3. Add the cream, milk, and chicken stock; bring to a boil.
  4. Lower the heat to a simmer and add the tasso (optional), thyme, and saffron (optional). Cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the potatoes; cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the salt, black pepper, and cayenne to taste. If using bacon instead of tasso, add now.
  7. Enjoy immediately.
