My family loves Mexican food, so when I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to make for dinner, I knew I had to make something Mexican. I decided to make a delicious Mexican Potato Soup, and I’m so glad I did!

This soup is so flavorful, with a hint of spiciness from the jalapenos. I love the combination of potatoes, cheese, and spices. It’s a comforting and hearty soup that my family loves. I usually serve it with a side of tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream.

The best part is, it only takes 35 minutes to make! I usually start by prepping the ingredients, so all I have to do is throw everything into a pot and let it simmer.

If you love Mexican food, you’ll love this Mexican Potato Soup. It’s a great way to enjoy the flavors of Mexico, and it’s so easy to make. Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!

For a spicier soup: add an additional jalapeno, or add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

For a creamier soup: add 1/2 cup of heavy cream or coconut milk.

For a vegan version: use vegetable broth, replace the cheese with vegan cheese, and omit the sour cream.
