Potato Soup with Green Chile and Yogurt

Potato Soup with Green Chile and Yogurt
  • Prep 20 min

There's something about digging into a thick warm soup on a cold day. I wait for the weather to turn chilly, and when it does, I run to my kitchen to make a bowl of comfort. I must admit that even though I love my thick soups, I have been thinking of new ways to cut back on the calories, every now and again I want to eat light. This soup has all the delicious taste of comfort, and at the same time is on the lighter side, since I use yogurt as my base instead of cream. For a little crunch, add corn nuts to this yogurt based potato green chile soup. The flavors of the potato, green chile, cheddar cheese and corn nuts are quickly becoming a classic and meld together perfectly. Try this soup anytime you want comfort, but not all the calories. Enjoy! MORE + LESS -
