This Potato Chipotle Soup Recipe with tortillas is a nice hearty soup for chilly days!
This recipe sort of came about quite by accident. I wanted to make a potato soup a little spicier so I thought I would add some Chipotle peppers to it. I added some cream and spices and it actually came out very good. It’s a nice, slightly spicy soup that brings extra warmth to a cold day. It goes great with these Green Chili Quesadillas or tortillas and butter.
It also can be made the day before which I think is nice because the flavors get a chance to blend. Another great thing about this recipe is that it is a very low cost to make. With the main ingredients being potatoes and chipotle peppers, you can make a pot of soup for just a few dollars.
