Expert Tips

If the soup turns out too thick, add more milk as necessary until the consistency is just right.

If you like potatoes as much as I like this soup, you're going to be delighted! At home I frequently prepare this dish, since with just one bowl of this deliciosa potato and leek cream, everyone at the table is left satisfied and content. If you prefer not to add any spice to your soup with the jalapeño Monterey Jack, try using a standard Monterey or cheddar cheese. I hope your family enjoys this meal as much as mine does!

Directions

  • 1 Begin by melting the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Incorporate the flour and mix until well combined. Cook for about one minute. Then, pour in the milk little by little, stirring constantly to avoid any lumps from forming. Continue to cook until the mixture begins to thicken, around one or two minutes. Add-in the garlic and season with salt and pepper as desired.
  • 2 Next, add the broth, potatoes and leeks. Stir well and bring to a boil; afterward, reduce to low heat and continue cooking for 15 to 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Finally, spoon the cheese and yogurt into the mixture. Cook for one last minute before removing from heat.
  • 3 Serve immediately garnished with some bacon bits and grated cheese.
