Absolutely wonderful soup!

I added homemade rivvels (Amish dumplings), plus one diced, cooked chicken breast after my husband jokingly asked if I were trying to turn him into a vegetarian. After tasting, I added some chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder. Oh yes, and I used an entire 7-oz can of diced green chiles (rather than the 4-oz listed in the recipe). When plating, I sprinkled diced, cooked bacon on top and served with toasted garlic bread. It was wonderful!

I fixed this soup for my husband, who loves homemade potato soup. He just raved about it and thought the corn and chiles was a great twist. Will certainly fix again.

This was really great and easy to make. We had it with corn tortilla strips lightly toasted as croutons. Really hits the spot on a cold rainy day!

My daughter loves potato soup and this recipe was very much like one we tried in Ireland but much zestier and so creamy--its really to put together and the whole family loves it!

Really enjoyed this soup, great soup with a southwestern flair. Next time I plan to use hot green chiles. My girlfriend and sister have asked for this recipe as they were impressed with it as well.
